Description

New readers of Mike Ponder will enjoy the fast-paced action of Four Kings, the stand-alone story of Zimbabwean, Gus McKenzie, whose land, Four Kings - won in a card game by his grandfather - is ravaged by looters and murderers after Mugabe decrees all white-owned farms will be resettled. Gus, left with nothing, vows to destroy those responsible for ruining his life. But who was responsible? Was it Mugabe, or was he a mere pawn in an international plot? Was the land taken for resettlement, or was there a more sinister reason? And why did the British not intervene? Together, Gus and his friend Simon Dwyer – himself wanted for murder and terrorism and on the run from the British Secret Police - devise a plan to expose the conspiracy. If they are successful, Gus will get his retribution and prove Simon’s innocence. From fighting insurgents in the oil soaked Niger Delta, to the cholera-ravaged slums of Harare and the searing heat of the Australian outback, the reader is treated to suspense piled on suspense from this masterful story teller, who adds another twist with every page.
