The Lone Warrior (Jark Lark 4) Paul Fraser Collard
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...
"Sharpe fans will be delighted to welcome a swashbuckling new hero to follow... Marvellous fun." Peterborough Telegraph
"I love a writer who wears his history lightly enough for the story he's telling to blaze across the pages like this. Jack Lark is an unforgettable new hero." Anthony Riches, author of Thunder of the Gods
