Robert Wilton has held a variety of posts in the British Ministry of Defence, Foreign Office and Cabinet Office. He was advisor to the Prime Minister of Kosovo in the lead-up to the country's independence, and has now returned there as a senior international official. He divides his time between Kosovo and Cornwall.
What the Narrator Says
"Robert Wilton does for cloak-and-dagger skulduggery in the Napoleonic Wars what George MacDonald Fraser does for later 19th century episodes such as the Crimea and the Indian Mutiny in his Flashman novels. Treason’s Tide brought the era to life for me; the intervening couple of centuries just melted away. Human nature hasn’t changed, and espionage is not an exclusively modern phenomenon. I loved narrating this book....more, please!" Cameron Stewart on narrating Treason's Tide

This was first published under the title "The Emperor's Gold".
I had borrowed the second book in the series from the Library, but on realising that there was an earlier title, ordered that from Audible. It was so brilliantly read by Cameron Stewart that I ordered the second as an audiobook as well.
The story, based around Napoleon's proposed invasion of England in 1805, is interesting in itself. That it is based on a secret archive from the Comptrollerate-General for Scrutiny & Survey ( a precursor of MI5 and MI6), leads to a fascinating book. It is a long and complicated one, with plots and counter-plots, but is well worth persevering with.
