(From the publisher):
Captain John Staple's exploits in the Peninsula had earned him the sobriquet 'Crazy Jack' amongst his fellows in the Dragoon Guards. Now home from Waterloo, life in peace time is rather dull for the huge, adventure-loving Captain.
But when he finds himself lost and benighted at an unmannned toll-house in the Pennines, his soldiering days suddenly pale away beside an adventure - and romance - of a lifetime...
