In a significant change of pace for me, I'm currently reading Soldier of Fortune by Edward Marston. 

The blurb: 

"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."

Opening line:

"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."
