The author of AFRICAN REVENGE brings all his expertise in machinery and warfare to a story of high and topical excitement.
Christine Rawls' first attempt to deliver a cargo of grain to the famine-stricken deserts of Chad is thwarted when her aircraft is forced down. Christine is humiliated, then contemptuously set free — as a mere woman — by the Islamic soldiers of the despot who cannot afford to see credit for charity go elsewhere.
Christine is determined to get the supplies through before it is too late, and approaches the one man capable of tackling the job: Lance Weber. It is a formidable task, and Lance at first rejects it as impossible. But Christine is in her own way every bit as ruthless, and Lance finds himself committed to organizing a convoy of thirty trucks of grain and medicines four and a half thousand miles along the dangerous spine of Africa. Confronted by hostile interests at every step of the way, Lance is forced to deploy all his lethal skills to batter his mission of mercy into the landlocked, wartorn heart of the continent.
To get his life-saving cargo through, Lance must threaten death — and deliver it.
LANCE OF GOD is a tour de force by a writer at the peak of his form.
— blurb by John Blackwell from the original Secker & Warburg hardcover edition
"Like the unblinking eye of a cobra,
it is fascinating and hard to look away from,
powerful and unique."
Edwin Corley/Good Books
"Something else again.
The author has plenty of first-hand experience
of the conditions he describes so vividly."
Marese Murphy/Irish Times
"Totally convincing fiction."
