Historical Fiction

'Georgette Heyer meets William Boyd ... Intrigue, murder, love and betrayal – I couldn't put it down' Diney Costeloe. Napoleon has won the Battle of Waterloo and England is under French occupation... A half-drowned girl washes up on a Cornish beach, escaping French soldiers after the murder of her black sea captain father. An aristocratic soldier-spy, haunted by his part in the defeat at Waterloo, plans to spring the Duke of Wellington from captivity. Together, they become enmeshed in a web of treachery and espionage stretching from London to the Scilly Isles. 'A marvellously dark and compelling anti-hero and a truly gutsy (and sexy) heroine ... A terrific read' Caro Fraser.
