REVIEWS

A sparkling gem of a novel; not only a gripping espionage thriller that has the extra thrill of being grounded in genuine history, but a beautiful, lyrical novel alive with the sheer joy of language. 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 Follet in a Southwark pub and someone gets coshed. That is to say, great, intelligent fun.
