Najwa’s father left when she was four years old. Now, upon her mother’s death, she cannot live alone in the Islamic society of Jordan. She must find her father.
Her search takes her through new dangers as she becomes swept up with a mysterious organization which sends her into the mountains of Afghanistan.
For her father, this same journey was made as a wrenching sacrifice for the sake of his beliefs. Yet his experience in the desert transformed his life forever.
Now it transforms Najwa’s, as she is compelled to follow in his footsteps: from a heartbreaking secret in Afghanistan all the way to a revelation in Britain.
The Iberian Peninsula, 1809.
French troops led by one of Napoleon’s best generals are massing on the border. Wellington’s outnumbered force and his unreliable Spanish allies need to pick off the smaller French units if they are to stand their ground.
For that they need information: accurate intelligence on numbers, arms and whereabouts. That’s where Captain Keane and his company of reformed scouting officers are invaluable tools – despite being unpopular with the regular soldiers.
Keane’s Challenge draws a fascinating picture of a disparate group of men brought together in a Peninsular War adventure that sees maverick hero Keane ride again.
Based on the true activities of the first British military intelligence unit, Keane’s Company, the first in the Keane series, presents a fascinating picture of the Peninsular War: a nineteenth-century Dirty Dozen and a worthy companion to Sharpe.
