Britain, 1805: Invasion and defeat by the Emperor Napoleon is imminent.
An intense, imaginative and darkly atmospheric historical spy thriller – Patrick O’Brian meets John le Carré.

‘A sparkling gem of a novel’ – M C Scott

REVIEWS

'A sparkling gem of a novel; not only a gripping espionage thriller grounded in genuine history, but a beautiful novel. Literate, intelligent, utterly captivating. Not since Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall has a novel been so drenched in a sense of time and place - and this has a plot that blows all comers out of the water.'
M C SCOTT

Robert Wilton's sensational thriller is set in 1805 as Napoleon's Grande Armée is about to invade England, but the real pleasure is the detail on London... Bernard Cornwell meets Ken Follett... That is to say, great, intelligent fun.
Time Out

Robert Wilton has discovered a fresh vein of literary gold with this dense, superbly satisfying novel... Beautifully written, wonderfully clever, this is a triumph
