SMALL WAR, FAR AWAYAndrew McCoy
CoolMain Press proudly presents a brand new Lance Weber novel commissioned from Andrew McCoy to stand between his classic tales of violent adventure, CAIN’S COURAGE and LANCE OF GOD.
Lance Webber is on trial for his life for the adventures recounted in BLOOD IVORY. Even if he escapes the hangman’s rope, he can’t stay in Africa. But his friend Tanner is already established in South America, so Lance goes ranching. However, Hernandez, the military governor of the State, wants Lance and Tanner’s land, and the Falklands War gives him the pretext to turn Lance and his party, including guests like Jimmy and Boo, into wanted criminals on the run. This explosive scenario is complicated by Jimmy’s girlfriend, the daughter of the French politician who has yes-power over delivery of the Exocets without which Argentina knows she will lose the Falklands war. Hernandez must take Jeanine alive or his military superiors will stand him up in front of a firing squad.
To save his wife and child, and his friends and their women, Lance must run and fight like he has never run and fought before, several thousand miles down the spine of Argentina to the only safety a stone’s throw from the Antartic at Punta Arenas on Cape Horn. But first, his back to a bridge he has blown up himself, in front of him a single road guarded by several hundred vengeful Argentinian soldiers, he must break out of the forest on the slopes of the Andes in which he has hidden the party.
SMALL WAR, FAR AWAY is another triumphant proof that no one excels Andrew McCoy in describing men and women in violent motion with their honor and lives as the prizes of failure. It is a tour de force by a writer at the peak of his form.
