Professional reviews

"'Confirms Mallinson's undoubted talents and marks him out as the heir to Patrick O'Brian and C S Forester.' OBSERVER 'From an unlikely meeting in Rome to the depths of the Indian jungle... the book picks up a pace that mirrors exactly a cavalry charge, from walk, to trot and, finally, to charge.' GUARDIAN"
