Lord of the atlas

A historical adventure thriller of old Morocco.

Marrakesh, 1893: After leaving his military career in disgrace, Harry Delhaze turns to a life of drink and gambling. But then he’s offered a way out – a small fortune to help the Sultan of Morocco quell a rebel uprising. It sounds like easy money and Harry thinks his luck has turned.

But he soon learns that nothing in life comes easy. He is forced to battle the wild bandit armies of ruthless prophet-warlord, Bou Hamra, through the snows of the Atlas Mountains and the baking deserts of the Sahara. And he suddenly finds himself in the fight of his life.

With everything on the line, Harry must search his soul. When you make war for money, does it matter whose coin it is – or do loyalty and justice still mean something?

From the backstreets of Victorian London to the kasbahs of Marrakesh, Lord of the Atlas is a gripping tale of intrigue, loyalty and courage, evoking the beautiful and the barbaric of nineteenth-century Morocco.
