Fiction, Thriller / suspense

An adventure novel from the acclaimed author of ROGUE MALE.

General Kucera fled his homeland of Czechoslovakia when the Communists arrived, and he made a new life for himself in the fictional republic of Guayanas. A gifted soldier, he builds up the Fifth Armored Division, which he commands, with hard-hitting efficiency.

But when revolution arrives in the land, General Kucera is unsure which side he should be on. His troops will make a huge difference to the outcome of war.

Loyalty to his adopted country means he initially joins with the President's forces. But as he realises that the war is between the haves and have-nots, one side supported by the veiled intervention of the United States and the Soviet Union, he realises that victory will be empty if it does not follow the wishes of the people.

Geoffrey Household

Geoffrey Household was a prolific novelist of political thrillers and suspense stories, most notably the classic ROGUE MALE, which, THE TIMES recently declared, 'remains as exciting and probing as ever'. He was as widely travelled as the settings of his books suggest: after graduating from Magdalen College, Oxford, with a first in English literature he worked abroad for twenty-five years, and served in British Intelligence during World War Two in Greece and the Middle East. He married twice and eventually settled in the English countryside with his wife and three children.
