Wellingtons outnumbered force and his unreliable Spanish allies need to pick off the smaller French units if they are to stand their ground.For that they need information: accurate intelligence on numbers, arms and whereabouts. Thats where Captain Keane and his company of reformed scouting officers are invaluable tools - despite being unpopular with the regular soldiers.But it soon becomes apparent that someone high up in Wellingtons headquarters is a spy for the French. Only someone able to travel widely outside the camp, someone privy to battle plans, could be the double agent - and Keanes enemies within the army are quick to point the finger. Keane must defend his crew against their accusers - or root out the traitor himself.The second book in the Keane series is a fascinating insight into the work of intelligence officers in Wellingtons army. Iain Gales matchless military imagination draws a picture of a disparate group of men brought together, in a Peninsular War adventure novel that sees his maverick hero Keane march again.
