Publisher's Summary

The Prime Minister is resisting growing calls for parliamentary reform, provoking scenes of violent unrest.
Against this inflammable backdrop, Lieutenant-Colonel Matthew Hervey, recently returned from an assignment in the Balkans, takes command of his regiment, the 6th Light Dragoons.
His fears that things might be dull are quickly dispelled by the business of vexatious officers and difficult choices over which NCOs to promote, not to mention the incendiarists on the doorstep of the king himself.

Incredibly boring

This is the worst and most boring of the Matthew Hervey books. It mainly deals with dull internal affairs of the regiment and a couple of very minor incidents too brief to carry the weight of tedium of the remainder. Also this reader is appalling. I must have heard him before but he seems to just reads with little enthusiasm or attempt at accents and voices. Perhaps he was as bored as I was.
