Against a backdrop of escalating tension, in an England mismanaged by inept leadership, Napoleon Bonaparte is silently massing battle-hardened troops along the French coast in anticipation of a cross-Channel invasion. While Ireland violently protests English oppression, an unlikely hero emerges in the form of an Irish bare-knuckle boxer by the name of Wolfe Trant. Recruited from the depths of Newgate Prison by William Pitt, an ex-prime minister who now operates a covert spy ring, Wolfe’s agenda is to infiltrate Napoleon’s inner circle to determine the intended point of invasion. Wolfe is forced to partner with the enigmatic leader of the French Resistance, a woman known only as Primrose, as the two are pursued through the streets of Paris by the sinister commissioner of police. Hounded by larger political and economic forces that have a vested interest in their failure, Wolfe and Primrose are forced to redefine their ideas of trust and loyalty as they race against time to defeat the strategically brilliant plans of Bonaparte.
