False Lights, Hardback Book

Description

'Georgette Heyer meets William Boyd ... Intrigue, murder, love and betrayal - I couldn't put it down' Diney Costeloe.

Napoleon has won the Battle of Waterloo and England is under French occupation...

A half-drowned girl washes up on a Cornish beach, escaping French soldiers after the murder of her black sea captain father.

An aristocratic soldier-spy, haunted by his part in the defeat at Waterloo, plans to spring the Duke of Wellington from captivity.

Together, they become enmeshed in a web of treachery and espionage stretching from London to the Scilly Isles. 'A marvellously dark and compelling anti-hero and a truly gutsy (and sexy) heroine ...

A terrific read' Caro Fraser.
