Rescuing Richard is the thrilling third instalment of the Richard Davey Chronicles. A breathless quest that sweeps the reader from the blood-soaked battlefields of Zululand to the corridors of power in Regency London. Richard is astonished when Shaka appoints him to his inner council, where he vies for influence with Napoleon Bonaparte, recently escaped from St Helena. Wrestling with his conscience, Richard confronts colonial adventurers exploiting the land he has sworn to protect. Sent as an ambassador to the court of King George, he defends Zulu interests while trying to help an old acquaintance escape an abusive relationship.
