'Like all the best vintages Jack Lark has aged to perfection. Scarred, battered and bloody, his story continues to enthral' Anthony Riches
Roguish hero Jack Lark - soldier, leader, imposter - crosses borders once more as he pursues a brand-new adventure in Africa.
London, 1868. For five years, Jack Lark has run a thriving club in the backstreets of Whitechapel. But life takes a devastating turn when he refuses to bow down to the East End's most formidable criminal.
A wanted man, Jack flees England. Together with his friend and treasure hunter, Macgregor, he joins the British army on campaign across Abyssinia, a high-stakes mission that returns Jack to the battlefield and on to the fortress of Magdala where the formidable Emperor Tewodros has taken British subjects prisoner.
But life on the run can turn dangerous, especially in a land ravaged by war . . .

Collard ... evokes the horror of that era with great brio. Enthralling * The Times *
Dusty deserts, showdowns under the blistering sun, bloodthirsty bandoleros, rough whisky and rougher men. Bullets fly, emotions run high and treachery abounds in The Lost Outlaw. This is classic Jack Lark in a classic western. Paul Fraser Collard has done it again and delivered another exceptionally entertaining historical action adventure -- Matthew Harffy
I love a writer who wears his history lightly enough for the story he's telling to blaze across the pages like this. Jack Lark is an unforgettable new hero -- Anthony Riches
It felt accurate, it felt real, it felt alive... Every line every paragraph and page of the battles had me hooked, riveted to the page, there were times when I was almost as breathless as the exhausted soldiers * Parmenion Books *
Impossible to put down... full of action and intrigue that leaves the reader thirsty for more * History... the Interesting Bits *
You feel and experience all the emotions and the blood, sweat and tears that Jack does... I devoured it in one sitting * Parmenion Books *
Expect ferocious, bloody action from the first page. Fast-paced, compelling, and with more villains than a Clint Eastwood classic, this unputdownable novel strongly reminded me of that legend of western writers, Louis L'Amour. A cracking read! -- Ben Kane
