Archibald Dexter, a hedonistic but adventurous and patriotic young man, joined the British Army at the end of the 18th Century. A hero in battle but in constant trouble in barracks, given a final chance for redemption he finds himself on the staff of Admiral Horatio Nelson. Trapped in Egypt following Napoleon’s invasion he will need all his wit and guile to survive and go on to play a pivotal role in Nelson’s victory at the Battle of the Nile.

Wounded and thrown into captivity, he eventually returns to London where as a member of a secretive department of the Aliens Office, he will be called upon to fight fierce battles against increasingly violent French agents, plotting and murdering their way across the capital.

Together with an oddball assortment of comrades Archie must travel to Spain on a deadly mission to rescue a British spy, the one man capable of enabling Pitt’s government to secure an alliance with a chance of defeating Napoleon. However it is back in London that he will face his sternest test, where failure will force him to choose between the life of his closest friend and the King of England.

Archibald Dexter is a new hero caught up in the turbulent times of the Napoleonic Wars. An Agent of the King is a fast paced, gritty and exciting action drama that takes the reader on a roller coaster ride through North Africa and Europe via the bordellos, slums and ballrooms of Georgian London.

    Good read

    I enjoyed this and will definitely read the sequel. Not your usual Napoleonic Wars book, more spy novel than war story. Good plot with plenty of twists right to the end.
