9780007212743: Rapscallion (Matthew Hawkwood 3)

Matthew Hawkwood, ex-soldier turned Bow Street Runner, goes undercover to hunt down smugglers and traitors at the height of the Napoleonic Wars in this thrilling follow-up to Ratcatcher.

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 the most 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.

But when they disappear without 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…

Product Description:

Title: Rapscallion <>Binding: Paperback <>Author: James McGee <>Publisher: Harper Collins Paperbacks

Review:

Praise for Resurrectionist:

‘Breakneck pace, brutal action, clever characterisation and twisty plotting … James McGee brings Regency London to life – or perhaps I should say to death!' Reginald Hill

Praise for Ratcatcher:

'Irresistible… rambunctious entertainment'
Observer

'Rumbustious…a darkly attractive hero, terrific period atmosphere and action' The Times

'Atmospheric and well researched… try it' Daily Mirror

'"Ratcatcher" has everything: duels and derring-do, London highlife and lowlife, French lechery and treachery – all contained in a fast-moving, cleverly constructed plot with an immaculately detailed historical background. Add a hero who is ruthless, mysterious and sexy, and it's a safe bet that "Ratcatcher" marks the start of a series that will run and run … and run!' Reginald Hill

'"Ratcatcher" is a richly enjoyable and impressively researched novel – also very gripping. James McGee is clearly a rising star in the historical galaxy and I look forward to Hawkwood's return' Andrew Taylor, author of 'The American Boy'
