Summary

India, 1816.

Fresh from the field of Waterloo, Matthew Hervey is dispatched on a mission of the utmost secrecy.

Leaving behind his fiancée, Lady Henrietta Lindsey, he must journey across tempestuous seas to India, an alien, exotic and beguiling land that will test his mettle to the very limit.

For the princely state of Chintal is threatened both by intrigue from within and military might from without, and Hervey - sabre in hand - finds he is once more destined for the field of battle....

Critic reviews

"Captain Hervey of the 6th Light Dragoons and ADC to the Duke of Wellington is back in the saddle ...He is as fascinating on horseback as Jack Aubrey is on the quarterdeck." ( The Times)

india

a wonderful story excellently told, and written with great detail and, I suspect, a love of the continent. the new adc takes a mission full of intrigue bravery and not a little danger. better I believe than the first in this series.
