Jack Lark, once the Scarlet Thief, has fought hard for his freedom. But will he risk it all to do the right thing?
Bombay, 1857. India is simmering with discontent, and Jack Lark, honourably discharged from the British army, aims to take the first ship back to England. But before he leaves, he cannot resist the adventure of helping a young woman escape imprisonment in a gaming house.
He promises to escort Aamira home, but they arrive in Delhi just as the Indian Mutiny explodes. As both sides commit horrific slaughter and the siege of Delhi begins, Jack realises that despite the danger, he cannot stand by and watch. At heart he is still a soldier....
The Lone Warrior is a scintillating tale of battle and courage from the author of The Scarlet Thief.

love these adventures
I don't know as I've not read it
When Jack Lark finds his lost love
When the hero realises and accepts that he can't fix everything
Well written and well performed tale of adventure, heroism, violence and truth. Its a rollicking yarn but it doesn't avoid cruel reality
