The Lion of Petra - Talbot Mundy

Recounted by a brawny trusted association, Jimgrim has a plan to bring a desert bandit to heel so he doesn't upset the Middle East peace process. Or force British air power to blow him and his whole tribe to you know where. Complicating the process are two wives, the brains of the operation. One sent on an errand for the other. Travelling back with her allows Jimgrim and his Seventeen Thieves to begin on their highly variable plan of attack. Things get even more entertaining when his own methods start getting copied by his antagonist. Much fun camel lore, too. 3.5 out of 5
