The Emperor's Assassin

(The second book in the Memoirs of a Bow Street Runner series)
A novel by

 
 
For twenty years, England and France have been at war. Now the war has come home…
On a sunny July day in 1815, Plymouth Sound is crowded with boats vying for a view of England's great battleship HMS Bellerophon. For aboard the vessel is the stout little Frenchman who threw the world into chaos. In London, some people clamor for Napoleon's execution, others for his exile, and still others for a civil trial on English soil. For one humble London detective, the debate has turned deadly. Bow Street Runner Henry Morton has a murder to solve--and Napoleon himself is at the heart of the matter.
The victim is a Frenchwoman, the mistress of a count. Soon Morton is racing through a demimonde of French expatriates, Bonapartists, fanatical Royalists, and one very dangerous, drunken petty crook. From an exotic London brothel to a scene of carnage on a Dartmoor farm, the detective enters a covert war over Napoleon's fate. And amid the betrayal, deception, and murder, Morton will face a waterloo of his own.
