Dust Clouds of War by John Wilcox

Book thirteen of the Simon Fonthill historical action and adventure series


September, 1914.  The First World War has already broken out on the Western Front.  Thousands of miles away, on the border between Northern Rhodesia and German East Africa, Simon Fonthill is preparing for battle alongside his faithful companion, 352 Jenkins and his reliable tracker, Mzingeli.  As they negotiate their way across foreign lands and hostile territories, the trio come under constant fire from enemy forces.

At the bequest of Admiral Herbert King-Hall, they undertake their most dangerous mission yet.  The sinking of the Konigsberg, a German cruiser hidden deep in the Rufiji Delta in German-occupied waters, which will test the men’s nerve and determination to breaking point.

Meanwhile, Fonthill’s wife, Alice, has been conducting investigations of her own in Mombasa – and when she thinks something is amiss within the camp, she takes matters into her own hands.  Amidst the chaos of war, treachery is never far away…

Peer & Press Reviews

John Wilcox is masterly in his building of characters; just a few pages reading, and often you feel you know them as individuals…  Dust Clouds of War is an enjoyable and, at times, compelling read.  The plot and sub-plots are well thought out and never stretch the realms of plausibility.  I would have no reluctance in opening another novel by John Wilcox.
