The Lost Trooper - Talbot Mundy

Where else does an Australian itinerant soldier go when his idiot English boss gets all the cattle he was in charge of killed? To James Schulyer Grim...and after that to a gold mine and a role as a minor sheikh pretending to be a wizard. What else? Cooee, cobber. Very amusing. Jimgrim has to step inbetween the conflict between Ross (an friend of his offsider Ramsden's, to boot) and The Avenger. Then try and not let fourth wife Ayisha backstab anyone principal, husband or wouldbe husband. Still 17 thieves to wrangle, and many camels. 3.5 out of 5
