James McGee has worked in banking, sales, newspapers, the airline industry and bookselling. His interest in the Napoleonic period dates back to his first reading of C.S. Forester's The Gun. This is the sixth in a series of books featuring Matthew Hawkwood.

`Irresistible... rambunctious entertainment' Observer
`Rumbustious...a darkly attractive hero, terrific period atmosphere and action' The Times

`Balancing moments of poignancy with swashbuckling action, historical interest, powerful suspense and wry wit, McGee delivers all the delights of a classic adventure story' Publishers Weekly
