Publisher's Summary

Action thriller by the classic adventure writer set in Africa.
It is no ordinary juggernaut. Longer than a football pitch, weighing 550 tons and moving at just five miles per hour, its job - and that of troubleshooter Neil Mannix - is to move a giant transformer across an oil-rich African state. But when Nyala erupts in civil war, Mannix’s juggernaut is at the centre of the conflict - a target of ambush and threat, with no way to run and nowhere to hide....

"Bagley is a master storyteller." (Daily Mirror

Excessive exposition, wrong-headed narration

Seemed like the story was too much in love with its own verbosity, with too much attention to the premise, not enough to draw in the listener. Not very engrossing to anyone unfamiliar with engineering endeavors and no attempt made to induce listener to care about the characters. Narrator professional, but wrong for this book.

A great exciting story

When this story started my other half said this is boring but by the time we were a bit further I was often shushed so he could hear the next bit. The reader is great with a wide range of voice that make you feel it is a full cast. The excitement continues right through to the end
