The year is 1893.
James Martingell is a self-made explorer, hunter and prospector, and few men know war-torn Southern Africa better than he does.
He also sells guns to whoever can afford them.
Offered a fortune to deliver a huge stock of weapons to would-be Boer rebels in the Transvaal, he believes he is about to be a rich man.
Instead, he finds himself facing betrayal, imprisonment, open warfare and eventually murder as he becomes involved with international arms traders.
Will he survive long enough to become the best known, and most feared, gun-runner in the world?
And what about his beautiful wife and children?
With so much at stake, he cannot afford to be beaten…
‘The Trade’ is the first book in the Arms of War saga.
