Stryker 7: Book 7 of The Civil War Chronicles - Stryker (Hardback)Michael Arnold (author)
- Coming soon
Late Summer, 1644. The King's cause in the north has been shattered and the pivotal city of York has fallen Parliamentarian eyes now look to his remaining territory in the south in a push for total victory.
But for Major Stryker, captured amid the bloody carnage of Marston Moor, the war appears to be at an end. Confined within the dank hell of London's Clink Prison, where the stinking floodwaters of the Thames are as deadly as his gaolers, his future is bleak. At the mercy of crazed inmates, murderous soldiers and a sadistic governor, this is a new world of savagery, disease and squalor, where all Stryker's military expertise counts for nothing, and matters take a turn for the worse when an old foe discovers his whereabouts.
With enemies on all sides, Stryker faces death at any moment. But he knows he must fight for freedom at all costs, for beyond the Clink's high walls there remains a spy to be hunted, a lover to be found and a war to win.
