A novel by

 
 
A man-hunt in the Western Desert ...

Hour after hour the trucks of the Desert Patrol crawled in the heat of the dry African sun.

Time after time the men had to clear the track, manhandling their heavy, laden lorries.

Time after time they went wrong, running into impassable wadis or cliff faces.

They were desperate men on a desperate mission behind the enemy line and one of them might be a traitor.

It is down to Captain Jackson to lead these men. He must learn their histories and their secrets in order to keep them safe.

And in the face of dangers, it is his decisions that will determine whether they will live or die.

Praise for Gordon Landsborough...
