ABOUT THE BOOK
In 1884, the eyes of the world are on Khartoum in 1884 where General Gordon, hero of Queen Victoria's Empire, is under siege. Hordes of Dervish warriors, loyal to the Mahdi, the Sudanese war lord and Messiah, are baying for British blood. With just a few thousand men and diminishing supplies, Gordon fears Khartoum will fall.
Ex-captain and army scout Simon Fonthill is summoned to Cairo. The army needs a hardened scout to slip through enemy lines to make contact with Gordon ahead of the relief force. Failure could mean instant death or slow torture at the hands of the Mahdi's disciples.
Fonthill knows the odds are stacked against success but accepts the mission. Soon he and his comrade, "352" Jenkins are crossing the Nile. But when they are captured by a sadistic Dervish patrol, it seems that, for Fonthill, time has finally run out...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
John Wilcox. An inability to do sums and a nascent talent to string words together steered me towards journalism - that and the desire to wear a trenchcoat, belted with a knot, just like Bogart.
The life of a daily paper reporter completely fulfilled me and I must have been competent because I won a "Young Journalist of the Year" award. It still, then, puzzles me that I allowed myself to be lured away to become head of public relations at one of the UK's largest car makers. I was happy, later, to move into the more tangible world of marketing and happier still when eventually I was able to sell the company that I partly owned to move to the country and just write.
Ten books and seven novels later I am still at it. Nowhere am I more content than sitting in my studio at the bottom of my Wiltshire garden, among the fairies, looking out on my chestnut trees and the Victorian world of Simon Fonthill

Remember, we have uploaded these books just for you because we wish to SHARE them. It is only right therefore, you SHARE them with others, and the only way you can do this, is to keep SEEDING. In other words, don't stop after you have finished the download. Check and make sure your torrent program is set to continue uploading even after the downloading has been completed. A ratio of 2.0 means you are giving back twice what you have received, the book won't die and all our efforts have not been wasted but 5.0 would be outstanding and shows you have really entered into the spirit of what we are about. WE DO OUR BIT AND YOU DO YOUR BIT, sounds fair, doesn't it. If you are new to this and don't understand, send me a Personal Message in the Forum, not in the comments section below. If I can't help, I know someone who can.
