Captain Antifer

A 17th Century Indiana Jones, ‘Captain Antifer’ details the adventures of the eponymous captain as he strives to inherit the legacy of the wealthy Kamylk Pasha. Aided and abetted by the Egyptian signatory, Ben Omar, and his less-than-scrupulous sidekick, Nazim, Antifer’s travels lead him across Africa and towards Norway. However, is the legacy all that it seems to be? ‘Captain Antifer’ is a rollicking escapade, packed with mystery, excitement, and double-dealing. An exciting introduction into Jule’s works.
