(From the publisher):
It is September 1803, and the uneasy peace between Bonaparte's France and his great rivals looks ever more precarious. The English are suspicious that Napoleon's motives for signing the Treaty of Amiens were to give him time to mobilise his forces against them - and they were right.
Alain Lausard is one of 200,000 men arriving in camps on the French coast, readying for invasion. While Napoleon is confident of victory, he cannot but be distracted by reports of those plotting against him from within. And so Lausard's regiment find themselves heading not for the Channel but for Germany, to arrest the figurehead of the plotters' scheme. It is a move riven with danger: an invasion of neutral Germany could push Russia and Austria into a powerful alliance with England; and Lausard suspects that it is an action not in the best interests of France, but of the First Consul himself...
