Publisher's Summary

When 16-year-old Angus Campbell finds himself orphaned and his life at risk, he leaves Tabriz and makes his way to Teheran to seek employment with the British ambassador there. His knowledge of Persian, Arabic, Armenian, Kurdish, and Pushtoo secures him a post as a secretary for Mr. M'Neill. Resourceful and intrepid, he soon finds himself involved in a number of dangerous and daring undercover missions during what has come to be called the First Afghan War. On one of these missions he rescues from certain death a young Afghan chief, and the friendship that develops between them has surprising consequences.

Historically Relevant Adventure

My wife and I enjoyed the story and would recommend it .. however, the download package we obtained had three errors in it that were distracting. (a) One of the chapters was out of sequence (14 and 15 were swapped I think), (b) as one chapter ended, previous material reappeared and (c) a few minutes of material were left out in the climax of the last chapter. I hope audible will correct these errors .. I would still recommend the story despite these errors. I would place this just below the Lion of St. Mark for story telling, but their are a few more interesting ethical dilemas that the protagonist must sort out in this story... Also, while tragic in its telling of a British reversal.. the story does illustrate Keegan's thesis in the History of War that war is the clash between cultures. This story offers more to think about ... and provoked many conversations between my wife and I over British imperialism. Western culture seems to need a more serious re-examination today as unserious minds express themselves too frequently in the popular media of our times.

GA Henry is a great author, and this book is a good one. However the reading is decent at best. Chapters 12 and 13 are mixed up I. The reading order.
