by CoolMain Press for the NEW Uniform Edition
Lance Weber wasn't always the hard man of Africa. AFRICAN REVENGE is the story of how he grew from a frightened boy in danger of losing his manhood over gambling debt, via a brutal crocodile hunt travelling across the landscape like a smallscale war, to being one of the most feared men on a dangerous continent. After ATROCITY WEEK, which the New York Times described as "a towering landmark in the literature of violence", AFRICAN REVENGE established Andrew McCoy as the leading writer of highly realistic adventure literature in places where, as John "Room at the Top" Braine wrote in the Sunday Telegraph, sensible people "don't go without air cover".
What the critics said:
"Mr McCoy gets on with the job of telling us exactly what it is like in the Heart of Darkness. He has the soldier's eye for terrain and the soldier's eye for character. This has the ring of truth."
John Braine/Sunday Telegraph
"Very rough, exciting, filmic, and redolent of a nostalgie de boue d'Afrique. Full of the rapport and affection for blacks experienced only by the genuine old Africa hand."
Alastair Phillips/Glasgow Herald
"Like the unblinking eye of a cobra, it is fascinating and hard to look away from, powerful and unique."
Edwin Corley/Good Books
"I found this work excellent. I recommend it as a book to read on several planes, whether of politics, history or just as thriller -- every episode is firmly etched on my memory. It is certainly a most impressive work of fiction."
"H.P."/BBC External Service
"Like a steam hammer on full bore."
Jack Adrian/Literary Review
"Something else again. The author has plenty of first-hand experience of the conditions he describes so vividly."
Marese Murphy/Irish Times
"Totally convincing fiction."
Colonel Jonathan Alford, Director, Institute for Strategic Studies/BBC World at One
"The reader is in good hands."
"Even in an entertaining thriller he makes us see ourselves anew."
"Graphic adult Boys Own Adventure."
