A real page turner about Finch, an RAMC captain, and Annie, an RAMC nurse, getting caught up on the wrong end of efforts by the Military Foot Police and secret agents to suppress leaked information about very nasty doings of the British during the early days of the Second Boer War; it is a bit like something from John Buchan....on speed.
Great plot, action, pace, presentation, characters and descriptions of parts of the South Africa landscape; also some nice writing and the odd touch of tongue in cheek humour, eg: "On the desk stood a candlestick telephone. The speed with which information could now be transmitted was perplexing to all but the young."
Towards the end, it gets a bit over the top, with too much action and bodies spattered all over the place but that's okay it is fiction and it works.
A spiffing yarn and top quality read and I will look out for more from Mr Dawson.

Loved this book! Knowing nothing about the history of the time I was soon engrossed in the story of 3 individuals connected by the Boar war. I love murder mystery books reading ones usually based in the US so was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed not only the mystery but the context in which this story is set. Will recommend this to others and can't wait for the next publication from the author

A good story, let down by the poor editing and weak ending.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Set in an era that isn't usually the subject of a book.
Can't wait to see what happens to the two main characters in the next instalment

Captain Ingo Finch of the Royal Army Medical Corps pieces together casualties from the battle for Kimberley. On leave in Cape Town, the slaughter proves inescapable for Finch.
Awoken at his lodgings by local police, he is informed that a British officer has been murdered in a city backstreet. An RAMC signature is required to expedite a post mortem. Shocked by the identity of the victim who was his commanding officer, the bizarre nature of the crime and what appears a too-convenient resolution, Finch seeks answers before returning to the Front.
Ingo & his feisty sidekick Australian nurse, Annie Jones are thrown together through circumstances.
Way to the north, Mbutu Kefaleze, a diamond mine runner, leads a band of tribal refugees on a trek across the vast Karoo.
It took me a little time to get into the book especially with the three storylines but once I did I was loathe to put it down. A well written novel that has lots of historical facts that for me add to the story. The characters are very well rounded & their history is there so you know where they are coming from. There are plenty of twists & turns that keep you reading to the end. I thoroughly enjoyed the book & will look forward to future books from the author.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of these books
