For a French prisoner of war, there is only one fate worse than the gallows: the hulks. Former man-o-wars, now converted to prison ships, their fearsome reputation guarantees a sentence served in dreadful conditions. Few survive. Escape, it's said, is impossible. Yet reports persist of a sinister smuggling operation within this brutal world, and the Royal Navy is worried enough to send two of its officers to investigate.

When they disappear without a trace, the Navy turns in desperation to Bow Street for help. It's time to send in a man as dangerous as the prey. It's time to send in Hawkwood.

"The dashingly mysterious Hawkwood is entirely suitable as a Regency-era James Bond." -- Kirkus Reviews "Historical thriller fans will look forward to the sequels." -- Publishers Weekly "Readers of C. S. Harris, Bernard Cornwell, and C. S. Forester, along with Dirk Pitt fans who enjoy historical fiction, will snap up this adventure." -- Library Journal "A ripping yarn, fast-paced, violent and exciting." -- Historical Novels Society "A darkly attractive hero, terrific period atmosphere and action that moves so fast." -- The Times (London) "Rambunctious entertainment." -- The Observer (London)
