July 1806. Commanding a prison hulk of French captives, Lieutenant Martin Jerrold thinks his war can't get much better. It all seems too good to last – and so it proves. When a prisoner goes missing, Jerrold's comfortable world collapses as he is ordered to recapture the Frenchman at any cost. But what makes this prisoner so damned important? As Jerrold closes in on his quarry he uncovers a devilish web of treachery stretching back 20 years and ensnaring the most exalted members of society.
