Praise for this book

"Hornblower meets Mission: Impossible. A thrilling, page-turning debut packed with rousing, rip-roaring action." - J D Davies

"This book has a rich cast of characters who will delight, enthral and keep you turning the pages to the very end. A brilliant, thrilling read, with a new - and very believable - hero. This is my favourite historical novel of the year so far." - Michael Jecks

"This is an outstanding novel, made even more remarkable by its début status. I loved it, from the first page to the end. Better than Sharpe, gripping and intense, Napoleon's Run deserves to be a runaway success." - Ben Kane

"Outstanding... Packed to the gunwales with action, this fast-paced story introduces us to William Hazzard, a Marine Lieutenant who takes on not just Napoleon, but also the espionage and machinations of the new French Republic during the reign of terror, Neapolitan high society, and even the British Admiralty itself. Leading a crew of wonderfully-drawn characters, Hazzard is not only a convincing action hero, but also one who offers a timeless insight into loyalty, trust and honesty. A thumping read." - Chris Lloyd

"A great read! Well-tempered and well-researched, with well-drawn characters who will, I am sure, be with us for a while." - Robert Low

"Loads of action and plenty of plot twists, meticulously researched with a fine period feel." - A J MacKenzie

"A strong, fast-moving story by an author with a deep knowledge of the period and the narrative skill of a fine story-teller." - Andrew Swanston
