Langbourne's Empire

By Alan P Landau

Historical fiction, Literary fiction, Action & adventure | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


Book 3 in the Langbourne Series. Based on a True Story. It is 1894 in the remote at settlement of Bulawayo, in what later became Southern Rhodesia. Recent immigrants from Ireland, Morris and David Langbourne throw body and soul into rebuilding their previously devastated business. Between Morris' brilliant business acumen and Davids almost limitless energy, their future looks very promising, as they take massive financial and logistical risks, and look forward to a booming business in the backwoods of beyond. Then the unimaginable happens: disease, a devastating plague, unforgivable stupidity in political designs, war and starvation. And if this wasn't enough, Morris makes a very simple mistake with exponential consequences. Yet these are the Langhorne brothers, and they refuse to be beaten.



Alan Landau was born in Salisbury, Rhodesia (now Harare, Zimbabwe) in 1959. In 1978 he joined the British South Africa Police (formally the BSAC). At that time Rhodesia was entangled in a civil war that ended in 1980. After serving in the new Zimbabwe Republic Police for a short time, Alan retired to enter the commercial world. Alan worked in Zimbabwe’s famous tobacco industry for five years before joining his father and ultimately taking over the family business when his father retired to the UK. Alan was involved in the travel, tourism, hotel, property, financial and retail sectors. His service to his community took the form of Rotary International with a committed focus on the Rotary Youth Exchange Program. In 2001 Alan migrated to Brisbane, Australia, where he bought a franchise in the retail sector, which he successfully ran with his late wife and two children. In 2012 he sold the business and went into semi-retirement. He now pursues his hobbies of writing, travelling, wildlife safaris and ornithology. Alan lives in Brisbane with his partner, Sharon.
