Set in 1805, during the assault by Napoleon on Britain, a silent, invisible killer is knifing sentries in the vast battle-camp poised to sail on England. Leaving notes signed "Captain Cut-throat", no one has any idea of who the assassin is, let alone how they're killing these men. A top English spy, Alan Hepburn, is captured by Fouche - Napoleons wily police chief - and is set onto the killers trail. He must discover the identity of the mysterious killer and serve his own country's ends as well - a gamble with most of Europe in hazard.
This story involves wild galloping horses, muskets, swordplay and a cunning mystery, all wrapped up in political machinations.
