    In The Maharajah's General by Paul Fraser Collard Jack Lark returns to the battlefield under a new name to face greater adventures in a brutal land. A must-read for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow. 'Collard evokes the horror of that era with great brio.

Thank you for your : Headline Book Publishing, Limited.

      The Maharajah's General is a ripping yarn, and a satisfyingly energetic romp through a fictional Indian kingdom where Jack Lark once again shows he may not have been born into the officer class, but he can lead men with panache and vigour and he will not stand by and watch wrongdoing, whoever the culprit/5(). The Maharajah's General was just as riveting as the short stories and the first book. It held my attention throughout and gave me previously unknown insight to British history in India. The story has it all, intrigue, fighting, right down to the gory details, betrayal, a possible love story, and more than one evil villain/5().
