From Katie Grant, the author of "Blood Red Horse" and "Green Jasper", comes the recipe for the perfect historical read: feisty heroine Alice de Granville; traitorous (but charming) relative Uncle Frank (deceased); and valiant men none other than Uncle Frank's executioner, Dan Skinslicer, and Captain Hew French of the King's Dragoons. Add Alice's heartfelt certainty that Uncle Frank's remains must be safely returned to Hartslove, a headlong flight on horseback, disguises, the ever-gossipy London mob and the devastating effect of Alice's blue eyes, for a brilliantly funny, exciting adventure. You won't want it to end!

K. M. Grant was born into a large Lancashire family that often found itself caught up in historical events -- usually on the losing side. Stories of high adventure, most of them true, were part of everyday life. Married, with teenage children, the author now lives in Scotland and works as a writer and broadcaster.
