Recruit training expert Bill Barrett heads for the Middle East to ply his trade in the latest novel in the Bluebelles series

What awaits Colonel Bill Barrett and wife Tommy in the Middle Eastern country of Aljibia following Bill's prestigious appointment to bring his expertise to bear in sorting out an underperforming military training establishment?

Will Tommy’s apprehension be justified when she comes face to face with her domestic staff at the villa?

Her handling of a drunken officer at the ex-Pats Club inspires admiration from the members but puts Bill on the trail of something sinister – especially when the identity of an old adversary shows up in his investigations.

Meanwhile, Bill’s appraisal of the local Recruit Training establishment and its complete disorganisation dismays his employers. Bill realises that to rebuild it from scratch would be an impossible task, so he brings Operation ‘New Broom’ into force.

Additional amusement is provided by the warm rapport that builds between Bill, Tommy and ‘Fred’, their permanent Arabic chauffeur.

As always, there is much to enjoy in Bob Bertie's latest light-hearted depiction of military life.
