The Keepers Of The King's Peace


Condition: Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition

Tom Stacey, London: 1973. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. Peace was not a condition which came naturally to the numerous tribes - in some moods childlike, in others ferocious - who lived in the huge West African territories over which Mr. Commisssioner Sanders ruled. The result was that he and his two colleagues, Captain Hamilton and Lieutenant Tibbetts, had sometimes to become very warlike themselves. They dealt out justice and mercy as best they could, knowing that, if for one moment their authority failed, death was waiting for them at the end of a stabbing spear - or possibly in some more horrible form. ISBN: 0854683461.
