Lord of the Atlas

Marrakesh, Morocco 1893

Harry Delhaze and George Marriot are offered a small fortune to help the Sultan quell a rebel uprising in the south, in the Atlas mountains. ‘We need experienced artillery officers,’ they are told. ‘Purely an advisory role, it’s not dangerous.’ 

They should have known better. 

They are forced to battle frostbite in the Atlas Mountains and endure the baking deserts of the Sahara; they are traded, kidnapped, and used as pawns in high-stakes political rivalries; they encounter women who worship cannons for fertility and magician-warlords who talk to the dead and play bloody games of chess with living slaves; and the three muzzle-loading cannon the Sultan has hired them to command are antiques that could explode in their faces at any moment. 

Then there is the Lord of the Atlas himself, Amastan el-Karim, who harbors a shocking secret that could cost them both their lives – or give one of them a reason to live again. 

An epic historical adventure evoking the beautiful and the barbaric of nineteenth-century Morocco, transporting the reader to a now-lost world. ‘Lord of the Atlas’ is adventure on a breath-taking scale.
