    Intrigue, action, and enemy attacks plus but that be telling Another well written book by what the Times called a genius This book is the last of the series of the sacrifices of the Scots in the British Army in the Northern Frontier of India circa 1897 to 1905 While there are some historical references included the author wisely chose not to dwell too much on history other than to give a sense of authenticity It s a fine book that could be read as a stand alone or as one in the series This book and the one before it are labelled by the editors as both being 13 So this book in actuality is actually the 14 th book of the series There are a number of uncorrected errors resulting from digitalization that should have been properly edited out Thankfully these minor errors do not confuse the reader but the editors should have spent time to correct those digitalization errors out of respect for the readership and for the author, Phillip McCutchan, who passed away in 1996 A fine read

    Too many chiefsWhat started out as a humanitarian mission turns quickly into rescue mission From there it becomes a mission to recover stolen gold and then back to a rescue mission to save the lives of the British civilians on the gold train Then there is the general, who gets left behind by the train he is traveling on Then the general in charge of the humanitarian mission attempts to capture the gold thieves and walks into a hostage situation The reason I said too many chiefs is because both generals in this story are worried about which one has seniority over the other This story is almost a comedy of errors if it wasn t for the fighting that sees good men die for the Raj Enjoyable definitely If you like stories of adventure this one will fill the bill One caveat there are a few misspelled words but that I felt was due to spelling checker not knowing that the author meant be instead of he little things like that It can happen to anyone.
