Summary

Jack Lark, once the Scarlet Thief, has fought hard for his freedom. But will he risk it all to do the right thing?

Bombay, 1857. India is simmering with discontent, and Jack Lark, honourably discharged from the British army, aims to take the first ship back to England. But before he leaves, he cannot resist the adventure of helping a young woman escape imprisonment in a gaming house.

He promises to escort Aamira home, but they arrive in Delhi just as the Indian Mutiny explodes. As both sides commit horrific slaughter and the siege of Delhi begins, Jack realises that despite the danger, he cannot stand by and watch. At heart he is still a soldier....

The Lone Warrior is a scintillating tale of battle and courage from the author of The Scarlet Thief.

love these adventures

Would you consider the audio edition of The Lone Warrior to be better than the print version?

I don't know as I've not read it

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lone Warrior?

When Jack Lark finds his lost love

Have you listened to any of Dudley Hinton’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Very well

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When the hero realises and accepts that he can't fix everything

Any additional comments?

Well written and well performed tale of adventure, heroism, violence and truth. Its a rollicking yarn but it doesn't avoid cruel reality
