    Capitan Daniel Rawson is a soldier, spy, linguist and ladies' man. Whether he is extracting valuable intelligence from the wife of a French general or leading his men in a Forlorn Hope, Rawson is a man on whom the Duke of Marlborough can always rely. Seething with intrigue and packed with swashbuckling heroics, the novel follows the Confederate army on the long, perilous trek across Europe to meet the French and their allies at the ferocious battle of Blenheim.

    Badly written, unlikely plot, badly read.

    I cannot think of anyone who would enjoy this book.

    Dashing career soldier and ladies' man, Captain Daniel Rawson, happily accepts the Duke of Marlborough's dangerous undercover mission to find a missing spy - a Dutch tapestry-maker's beautiful daughter Amalia, unaware of her father's espionage role, is fearful for her safety. It's up to Daniel to find her father and put Amalia's mind at rest.

    Okay, But...

    I don't know what it was, I just couldn't get into this book. It is one of my favourite periods in history, but I was not gripped by it.
