Currently Reading - Soldier of Fortune, Edward Marston
In a significant change of pace for me, I'm currently reading Soldier of Fortune by Edward Marston.
"The dashing Captain Daniel Rawson - spy, linguist, duellist, ladies' man and career soldier - can charm a woman as well as he can parry a sword. And whether it is extracting information from the wife of a French general or leading his soldiers in a Forlorn Hope, Rawson proves himself invaluable to John Churchill, the Duke of Marlborough and the Confederate forces as they head towards the ferocious battle of Blenheim."
"Saturday, July 4, 1685. Daniel Rawson saw him at once. The boy was walking across a field with his dog, Tinker, at his heels when he caught sight of a lone horseman coming over the brow of the hill."
