A spellbinding historical drama about an ex-soldier in 1820s London who must help rescue an innocent man from Death Row. It is the end of the Napoleonic Wars and England has just fought its last victorious battle against the French. As Rider Sandman and the other heroes of Waterloo begin to make their way back to England, they find a country where corruption, poverty, and social unrest run rampant, and where "justice" is most often delivered at the end of a hangman's noose. Sandman's investigation reveals that, though the Queen herself has ordered a reinvestigation of the circumstances, someone else does not want the truth revealed. In a race against the clock, Sandman moves from the hellish bowels of Newgate prison to the perfumed drawing rooms of the aristocracy, determined to rescue the innocent man from the rope. As he begins to peel back the layers of an utterly corrupt penal system, he finds himself pitted against some of the wealthiest and most ruthless men in Regency England.

Most of the story takes place in and around Regency London. Bernard Cornwell has always excelled at period details and he doesn't falter here. Great characters, from guttersnipe to lord, all are brought to life beautifully in character description and colourful dialogue. This is quality genre fiction, an absolute true pleasure to read!
