The Lone Warrior by Paul Fraser Collard

Even as a civilian Jack Lark finds himself enmeshed in mayhem.  Caught up in a large scale mutiny by native contingents of the British Army in the city of Delhi, Jack is thrust once more into the gaping maw of bloody warfare.  As in the other books in this enthralling series, the author doesn’t stint when it comes to the brutality on a battlefield, nor in Jack’s battle lust inspired prowess at killing.  The author also continues to refine Jack’s character to a point where the reader can really begin to feel the anguish he suffers; the joy of having someone to live for and the pain that results from it, the conflicting emotional results of his place in the army.  Does he belong there?  Does he belong anywhere?  Many were the times I had to put the book down (okay, close my Kindle), and take a breath.  This series started out great; it has only gotten better. I, for one, can’t wait to read the next one.  5 stars
