Product Description

Paperback, ISBN 9781800322905

The thrilling second novel in the William John Hazzard series, following Napoleon's Run.

Malta, June 1798. Captured by the French after hurling himself into enemy ranks, Hazzard is now a prisoner of his arch-nemesis, spycatcher Citizen Derrien, but has uncovered the true purpose of Napoleon's armada: the conquest of Egypt. Their bold plan is to cut open the ancient Suez Canal to the Red Sea and attack India, the jewel in England's crown.

The survival of nations in the balance, Nelson scours the Mediterranean for the French in vain. If Hazzard can't convince Admiralty Intelligence of a desperate plan, an ancient world will be lost for ever. But help comes from an unexpected quarter: the missing Admiralty agent…

As French cannons roar in the desert sands and the Mamluk cavalry sweeps in to attack, Hazzard fights to prevent a lost cause turning into tragedy.

From the shores of Malta to the epic encounter at the Battle of the Nile - this is the explosive beginning of the French conquest of Egypt. Never give up the boat.

'This is an outstanding novel, made even more remarkable by its début status. Better than Sharpe, gripping and intense, Napoleon's Run deserves to be a runaway success' Ben Kane, Sunday Times bestselling author of Lionheart on Napoleon's Run
