Near-fine first edition, with slight bruising to bottom of spine. Previous owner's ex-libris plate inside front cover. In a very good unclipped dust jacket with some chipping to spine and corners.
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.
