An epic tale that never loses sight of the raw experience of the hero. I loved Napoleon's Spy' Simon Scarrow 'Exciting, immersive, well researched and great fun.' Giles Kristian'Harrowing and totally gripping. A masterclass in writing fiction about real historical events' Leonora Nattrass, author of Black Drop Russia, 1812. Has France finally met its match?On the eve of the invasion of Russia, half-French, half-English Matthieu Carrey finds himself in the ranks of Napoleon's five hundred thousand strong army. With Tsar Alexander seemingly ill-prepared, a French victory seems certain. The Grande ArmAce will obliterate everything in its path. Carrey's purpose is less clear. Blackmailed into becoming a spy in the emperor's army, he hopes to follow his lover, a French actress who has gone to work in the Moscow theatre. As supplies grow scarce and temperatures plummet, the Grande ArmAce begins to crumble. Caught up in the maelstrom of war, Carrey embarks on an epic journey, while the Russians circle like hungry wolves. Hundreds of miles lie between Carrey and safety. To reach it seems utterly impossible.
