An intense, imaginative and darkly atmospheric historical spy thriller - Patrick O'Brian meets John le Carre. (Previously published as The Emperor's Gold.)

July 1805: Napoleon's army masses across the Channel - Britain is within hours of invasion and defeat. Only one thing stands in the way - an obscure government bureau of murky origins and shadowy purpose: The Comptrollerate General for Scrutiny and Survey. And, rescued from a shipwreck, his past erased, Tom Roscarrock is their newest agent.

In England, the man who recruited Roscarrock has disappeared, his agents are turning up dead, and reports of a secret French fleet are panicking the authorities. In France, a plan is underway to shatter the last of England's stability. Behind the clash of fleets and armies, there lies a secret world of intrigue, deception, treachery and violence - and Roscarrock is about to be thrown into it headfirst.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'A sparkling gem of a novel; not only a gripping espionage thriller grounded in genuine history, but a beautiful novel. Literate, intelligent, utterly captivating. Not since Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall has a novel been so drenched in a sense of time and place - and this has a plot that blows all comers out of the water.' * M C SCOTT *
Robert Wilton's sensational thriller is set in 1805 as Napoleon's Grande Armee is about to invade England, but the real pleasure is the detail on London... Bernard Cornwell meets Ken Follett... That is to say, great, intelligent fun. * Time Out *
Robert Wilton has discovered a fresh vein of literary gold with this dense, superbly satisfying novel... Beautifully written, wonderfully clever, this is a triumph * Daily Telegraph *
A compelling thriller * Sunday Times *
