A Cleft of Diamonds
by Tony Matthews
A Cleft of Diamonds is a story of high adventure set mainly in British & German East Africa in 1914/15. Norwood Tynbridge-Pierson, the son of Britain’s minister for war, is instructed to go to Nairobi to gauge the public’s reaction to the possibility of war with Germany. What follows is a saga of immense proportions, an African adventure of love, reckless courage, fear and astonishing triumph.
