For this book club we're going to discuss Cry Wolf by Wilbur Smith, a novel set during the 1935 Italian invasion of Ethiopia. First published in 1976, the book is still in print and is also available as an ebook or audiobook. Cry Wolf is published in paperback by Zaffre (ISBN 9781785766787). Second hand copies of the many editions published are widely available.

When Jake Barton, American engineer, teams up with English gentleman and hustler Gareth Swales to sell five battered old Bentleys in 1930s East Africa, neither of them could have imagined that they'd soon be attempting to smuggle the vehicles into Ethiopia to support the war effort, in return for a huge reward.

But to do this, they'll have to manoeuvre past several extremely hostile European forces, as well as managing their feelings for Vicky Camberwell, the beautiful journalist who has been sent with them to report on the brutal violence of the Italian invasion of Ethiopia. The three adventurers are about to discover that some battles are more than they can handle . . .
