The spies of England, France and Prussia are fighting their own war for survival and supremacy. Somewhere in Paris is a hidden trove of secrets that will reveal the treacheries of a whole continent.At the height of the madness a stranger arrives in Paris, to meet a man who has disappeared. Unknown and untrusted, he finds himself the centre of all conspiracy. When the world is changing forever, what must one man become to survive?Treason's Spring is a thrilling and meticulous panorama of Paris in the Revolution, the first of a trilogy of books whose revelations transform our understanding of an era.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A rare, clever treat of a novel. -- The Times * Antonia Senior *
A clever, sophisticated novel emerges of a revolutionary psychosis into which are swept all manner of lovers and liars, innocents and manipulators. * Daily Mail *
[An] engrossing... fascinating tale * Sunday Express, best new historical fiction *
Beautifully written, wonderfully clever, this is a triumph. * Daily Telegraph on Treason's Tide *
Exhilarating, passionate, inspiring and literate and will garner new readers from lovers of Hilary Mantel and Bernard Cornwell alike. * Manda Scott on Traitor's Field *
A learned, beautifully written, elegant spy thriller. * The Times on The Spider of Sarajevo *
Sharing the page with real historical figures such as Joseph Fouche and Georges Danton, Wilton's characters are at the heart of most of them. As in his other books, the kaleidoscopic narrative is initially confusing, but its fragments gradually come together and a satisfying pattern emerges * Sunday Times *
