To Feed the Sparrowhawks (This is the first of three parts of 'To Feed the Sparrowhawks')

It is 1976, and Rhodesia has exploded into full-scale civil war. The ‘Winds of Change’ have reached hurricaine proportions and the settler-led regime is fighting a vicious rearguard campaign in the vast Tribal Trust Lands and on remote and isolated border farms, against an ever more determined Black Nationalist foe.
Unwillingly sucked into this conflict, farmer Jumbo McQueen meets the girl of his dreams and hopes to build a future with her on his farm. Caring nothing for politics, McQueen is drawn by a single wartime incident – and by his close friendship with a member of the Security Forces – into the spiral of violence.
‘To Feed the Sparrowhawks’ simultaneously follows the fortunes of McQueen, the Guerrilla section that targets his farm, and McQueen’s Special Branch friend: Vic Bailey.
This is the first part of the three-book series. It covers a period of just over a week from the time of the initial incident until after the farm attack, and includes a preview of the second book, which is due to be launched in April 2013.
