Signed by author to a bookplate affixed to title page. Near-fine first edition, with slight lean to spine. In a very good price-clipped dust jacket, with some chipping to corners and spin.
A thriller set in the age of empire, battle and conquest, about a man whose dream begins in the danger and drudgery of the diamond pits and ends on the rich grasslands of Matabeleland, but not before a king and proud warrior nation have paid the price of history. From the author of THE SEVENTH SCROLL.
