Overview

New Orleans, 1891: Lee Christmas gets drunk and falls asleep at the throttle of his locomotive, plowing straight into an oncoming train. Blacklisted from the railroad and his marriage in tatters, he flees New Orleans on a steamer bound for the tropics.

In Honduras, he begins a quiet new life. But trouble has a way of finding Christmas. With unrest sweeping the countryside, he's kidnapped by bandits. Soon, he finds himself taking sides in an all-out civil war--as leader of the rebellion.

MERCENARY is the thrilling story of the USA's most famous soldier of fortune: the hard-drinking drifter who changed the fate of a nation.

About the Author

David M. Gaughran is Irish but lives in Portugal these days, somewhere north of Lisbon in a lovely little fishing village. He likes dogs, whiskey, collecting old records, laborious puns, and also cooking elaborate feasts and inviting exactly nobody around to share them. He is also fond of slow cars, fast walks on the beach, movies which contain some form of time-loop, and any kind of song with a call-and-response element. He is the author of several historical adventures like Liberty Boy, Mercenary, and A Storm Hits Valparaiso, and a number of books for authors - as well as some science fiction - under another name.
