Marcus Beaumont, spy for his majesty’s government, has to appear insignificant. His life depends upon it. In Britain’s struggle against the tyrant Napoleon, his missions find him involved in murder, lust and even love.
From the Author
This story was a challenge as I began writing it for the 2011NaNoWriMo competition, my first ever.
Unfortunately, I didn’t finish it in time but I did know where I was going, so was able to finish it ten days later.
Most of my Regency stories have an element of the conflict between England and France during the Napoleonic Wars and this one is no exception. It was an extraordinary epoch!
For some reason, there is a little more violence in this one than in my others. Perhaps the urgency in writing added an extra drop of adrenalin to the tale. I do not believe that any future stories will include murder. This one has got it out of my blood!
