Hawkwood, the Regency James Bond, stirs up rebellion in Napoleonic
Paris. An action-packed follow-up to the bestselling Ratcatcher
October 1812: Britain and France are still at war. France is
engaged on two battle fronts - Spain and Russia - and her civilians
are growing weary of the fight. Rebellion is brewing. Since
Napoleon Bonaparte appointed himself as First Consul, there have
been several attempts to either kill or overthrow him. All have
failed, so far! Meanwhile in London, Bow Street Runner Matthew
Hawkwood has been seconded to the foreign arm of the Secret
Service. There, he meets the urbane Henry Brooke, who tells him
he's to join a colleague in Paris on a special mission. Brooke's
agent has come up with a daring plan and he needs Hawkwood's help
to put it into action. If the plan is successful it could lead to a
negotiated peace treaty between France and the allies. Failure
would mean prison, torture and a meeting with the guillotine!
