Description of this Book

Devonshire born Nicholas Reede joins the army as a teenage Ensign and is sent to India to become involved in fighting at Lucknow during the Indian mutiny of 1857 where he is badly wounded undertaking an outstanding act of bravery. The senior British officer trapped there when the mutiny erupts is on route to London with a secret dispatch containing information that could save the life of the Monarch, reveal a secret plot to end British rule and prevent a major war in the region.

The mutiny was deliberately triggered to prevent the information leaving India and when the injured Nick Reede is entrusted with the task of delivering the dispatch to England he and his small escort are hunted down by those intent on stopping it at any cost.

Nothing short of a miracle sees him plucked at deaths door from the middle of the Bay of Bengal and thrust into the brig of a penal ship headed for Sydney. With total memory loss and plagued by nightmares, he is suspected of being a deserter and is placed among the lower ranks of a British regiment which is then dispatched to New Zealand to be pitted against the worlds most fearsome guerrilla fighters, the legendary Maori. Attacked, captured and ultimately facing a Courts Martial for murder he finds himself facing the greatest challenge of his life.
