Synopsis

`Stirring period piece set in the anxious months before the outbreak of the First World War' Sunday Times



With the shadow of the First World War looming ever closer, Britain is quietly relieved when Turkish bandits hold to ransom engineers working on a railway that threatened its oil interests in the Persian Gulf. Feigning help, the Foreign Office sends the notorious Lady Kelso, once the lover of the bandit's chief, with members of the fledgling Secret Service Bureau to serve as 'diplomatic protection'.



Ambush, betrayal, murder and bombardment all ensue as there are others - German, Turkish and French - all honourably putting their own country's interests first.

Gavin Lyall (1932-2003) was a Royal Airforce pilot, journalist, and prolific author of spy and aviation thrillers. His years as a Royal Air Force pilot lent his fast paced, tautly written aviation thrillers authenticity. His first novel, The Wrong Side of the Sky, was inspired by his personal experiences in the Libyan and Greece and became an international bestseller. He also worked as a journalist, first with the Picture Post and the BBC, then as the Sunday Times' aviation correspondent.
