Ben is sunk in alcoholic self pity and haunted by flashbacks of his finished army career and has fallen to the point so not even his brother will believe he is innocent.MI5 know he didn’t do it, but for reasons of their own they wish him to remain in prison. But determined to prove his innocence Ben escapes and sets off on a quest to prove Khavari is still alive. His search leads him to an old Abbey Gate House where he falls in love with the beautiful widow of a dead friend - then to a hi jacked ship on the North Sea before nearly dying on a storm swept Scottish mountain.What is going on in the old naval base hidden on a remote loch in Scotland? Why is it harbouring an ancient American warship with dummy guns? And what is the purpose of fitting it with a strong room? And are Al ‘Qaeda involved?America killed Khavari’s son, the British killed his father and the Ayatollahs killed his wife and debts must be paid.Drum Dawn is the story of two men’s struggle - one to regain his life and prove his innocence and the other to fulfill his dream of exacting a terrible revenge.
