‘One bloody bullet gets you in the end, he said as he coughed up a mouthful of blood and exhaled one last long breath…’
A single murder lies at the heart of this compelling crime mystery that moves from the battlefields of Turkey and Palestine to the storm-tossed North Atlantic during World War One.
It is 1916 and teenage sniper Thomas Clare knows only too well what a single bullet can do as he struggles with his ghosts from the blood-soaked gullies of Gallipoli.
A first love affair in exotic Cairo helps him bear the pain of lost comrades, until a corrupt policeman from his past turns up dead. Thomas unearths a mystery connecting his murdered parents to war crimes committed a generation before – the only clue, a blood-stained bayonet.
Accompanied by Lawrence of Arabia, Thomas soon finds himself in the middle of a plot to assassinate the British Empire’s most famous warrior. KILLING KITCHENER – a powerful novel of adventure, love and betrayal – is for everyone who has ever wondered about the price of murder in war.
