THE TEMPLE: Book Three of the Sir Sidney Smith Series
by Tom Grundner
Its 1798 and Sir Sidney Smith is languishing in The Temple, Frances maximum security prison. For the past two years he had been running the Agence de ParisBritains primary spy ring in Francefrom his cell. But the authorities are starting to close in. Its time for Sir Sidney to leave; but, to do so, he must stage one of the most spectacular prison breaks in history. Arriving back in England, Sir Sidney is welcomed as a national hero; but he is far from comfortable in that role. It is with relief, therefore, that he receives a set of orders sending him to Portsmouth for further duty. What he didnt know was that his new duty would involve working with a ner-do-well itinerant musician, by the name of William Parishwho happens to be a genius at breaking codes. Napoleon is massing ships, troops, and supplies at Toulon and a number of other ports. He is clearly planning an invasion; but an invasion of who, where and when, no one knows. The key is a captured message that Parish and Smith must break, but its encoded in a way that has never been seen before. From a dreary prison in Paris, to the opulent palaces of Constantinople, to the horror of the Battle of the NileThe Temple will take you on a wild ride through 18th Century nautical history. The Sir Sidney Smith Series is based on the life of Admiral Sir Sidney Smith (1764-1840).
