Summary

A topical historical adventure starring George Hart, the lead character from David's bestselling debut novel ZULU HART.

Hart of Empire Summary

Hart of Empire: (Zulu Hart 2) by Saul David

George Hart, back in England following his heroics in the Zulu Wars, scarcely has time to gamble away his meagre fortune when he is summoned to a secret meeting in Whitehall. There, Prime Minister Disraeli himself asks George to undertake a dangerous mission to Afghanistan.

Mistrust and dislike for the local ruler chosen by the British is growing and Muslim extremists threaten to overthrow the local government. The British cannot allow the loss of Afghanistan, which would put at risk India, the jewel in the Imperial crown.

Although he suspects that the Establishment sees a part-Zulu officer as expendable, George can see that his dark skin will help him go undercover, and soon, accompanied only by a Pathan guide, he is descending the Khyber pass into a strange and violent land. On the way he meets Yasmin, an alluring Afghan princess, and together this unlikely trio find themselves in a race against time to prevent a tribal uprising and head off a catastrophic British invasion.

Hart of Empire Reviews

As precocious as ever, our daredevil hero is once again in the thick of things as he takes on anyone and everyone who dares to cross his path. Great stuff. * Daily Mail *
There is no escaping the grip of [David's] second Hart novel . . . Hart is a proper boy's own hero * Daily Telegraph *
A first-rate historian, now a masterly story-teller * Bernard Cornwell on ZULU HART *
David is a popular historian with a rare talent . . . An unashamed crowd-pleaser with a compelling, sexy hero who could give Cornwell's Sharpe a run for his money. * The Times on ZULU HART *
A Victorian adventure as big as the veldt and chewier than buffalo biltong . . . real figures of the period are endowed with motive, intent and dialogue that may be fictitious but are entirely convincing * Sunday Telegraph on ZULU HART *
Let's hope that Saul David's new character will be reappearing . . . a terrific adventure * Rodney Troubridge on ZULU HART *
Gems like this are too rare. I was hooked in ten pages. * Conn Iggulden on ZULU HART *
