Publisher's Summary

Things are looking up for Major Matthew Hervey: news of a handsome legacy should allow him to purchase command of his beloved regiment, the 6th Light Dragoons. He is resolved to marry, and, rather to his surprise, the object of his affections, the widow of the late Sir Ivo Lankester, has readily consented. But he hasn't reckoned with the opportunism of a fellow officer with ready cash in hand.

What the Critics Say

"A damn fine, rip-roaring listen." (Literary Review)
"Mallinson's descriptions of what it's like to be on campaign are...compelling, vivid, and plausible." (Daily Telegraph)

    "a real British Officer"

    this is a well researched book about a typical British Cavalry officer, and Calvary Regiment in the early 1800s....I have enjoyed all Mallinsons books.

    "Just not worth it."

    I usually enjoy historical fiction but this was a very poor use of listener credit. Leave this one alone and move on to something else.
