A Land of Legend...Patagonia, the vast wilderness of legend, becomes the centre of conflict for four men, their wives and lovers. Set in the period of the 1880's to the 1930's, the novel follows the lives of Frank Burnley, a sheep farmer, Jose Mendez, a powerful industrialist, Simon Goldwitz, a Russian Jewish anarchist, a corrupt police inspector and the women who made them what they are. A WORLD OF AMBITION...Each has his own ambitions. Each has his own agenda. Inexorably drawn together by love, conflict and violence, the events that rage around them alter the course of their lives and that of the country they seek to build in their own image. A COUNTRY OF VENGEANCE...Intertwined by their political beliefs, the protagonists fight for power and revenge. From the theft of the Tehuelche Indians' traditional lands, to the plotting of the overthrow of the government by a charismatic anarchist and the determination of the scion of an ancient Argentine family to crush any dissent that threatens his business empire, 'Doves of Steel' is a well researched, fast moving, historical novel filled with fascinating characters and with an ending that won't be picked by the reader.
