A professional ex-soldier emerges from his self-imposed quiet civilian career to take on the rescue of an abducted young African woman.

Book Description

A young woman is kidnapped by members of her family to be ‘sold’ as repayment of a failed property business deal. The evil landowner, a self-styled ‘witch doctor’, brokered this arrangement for his own perverted pleasures.

An ex-soldier who had somewhat lost his way in life is offered the opportunity to take on a contract to recover the girl from her captors in Africa—a rescue mission funded from a surprising source not normally connected with a mercenary action.

The tale of the quality of the man recruited for this fast moving mission of mercy is outlined against his troubled resettlement into civilian life and efforts to restore his pride in himself.

The fast moving operation takes our soldier of fortune from the UK to The Volta Region of Ghana in West Africa culminating in a quick but savage encounter in the pursuit of the abductors and their victim.

About the author

Roy ‘Toby’ Bishop is an ex-army officer who enlisted into the Royal Military Police in 1956 and then served a full career. He gained his own independent command as a major in 1984 and was awarded the MBE in 1982 by the parachute forces for his efforts in support of their worldwide role. He left the army in 1986, taking advantage of an opportunity to work in Ghana raising and training a security force for the Volta River Authority for the protection of their hydro electric darns and installations. He has since worked on contract in other African countries where he has gained a fondness for the continent.

This is a tale of the experiences and opinions of a former army officer (seeking to change his way of life) after thirty years serving in H M Forces. The total change from a regulated and controlled military establishment to that of working in isolation in West Africa, without communication, and with limited support from the outside world, came as a shock—and he had to deal with it
