This was first published under the title "The Emperor's Gold".
I had borrowed the second book in the series from the Library, but on realising that there was an earlier title, ordered that from Audible. It was so brilliantly read by Cameron Stewart that I ordered the second as an audiobook as well.
The story, based around Napoleon's proposed invasion of England in 1805, is interesting in itself. That it is based on a secret archive from the Comptrollerate-General for Scrutiny & Survey ( a precursor of MI5 and MI6), leads to a fascinating book. It is a long and complicated one, with plots and counter-plots, but is well worth persevering with.
