About The Book

London, 1798. A junior naval officer intercepts a coded dispatch: Napoleon Bonaparte is about to launch the largest invasion fleet in history. Target: Unknown. Can the British Navy uncover Napoleon's plans in time to prevent a disaster?

After receiving a mysterious dispatch that Napoleon's army is preparing an invasion, the Sea Lords of the British Navy fear an assault on England and need a special officer to uncover the destination of Napoleon’s armada—a man who never stops: Marine Lt William John Hazzard. But Hazzard has left the Navy, vowing never to return. The Admiralty, however, knows just how to persuade him. They know where his missing fiancée, Sarah, is…and she’s in danger.

This epic adventure is perfect for fans of Cornwell and C. S. Forester.
