This novel, which many reviewers felt was influenced by the style of Conrad's Lord Jim, draws on the life of James Brooke of Borneo to give us an account of European colonialists in a foreign land. The story is seen through the eyes of Alice, the wife of Gideon Barr (the fictionalised James Brooke.) Inhumanity, greed, adventure and romance make a potent mix in this author's first novel. 472 pages.
