Napoleon’s Spy

Sunday Times bestselling author Ben Kane will be at Lincoln Museum (new name for The Collection) on Thursday 22nd June at 7pm to talk about his new historical fiction standalone, Napoleon’s Spy.

Napoleon: Emperor of France, master of Europe. 1812. On the eve of the invasion of Russia, half-French, half-English Matthieu Carrey finds himself in the ranks of Napoleon’s five hundred thousand strong army. With Tsar Alexander seemingly ill-prepared, a French victory seems certain. The Grande Armee will obliterate everything in its path. Carrey’s purpose is less clear. Blackmailed into becoming a spy in the emperor’s army, he hopes to follow his lover, a French actress who has gone to work in the Moscow theatre. As supplies grow scarce and temperatures plummet, the Grand Armee begins to crumble. Caught up in the maelstrom of war, Carrey embarks on an epic journey, while the Russians circle him like hungry wolves. Hundreds of miles lie between Carrey and safety. To reach it seems utterly impossible.

Kenya born, Irish by blood and a UK resident, Ben Kane’s passion for history has seen him change career from veterinary medicine to writing, and has taken him to more than 60 countries, and all seven continents. Eleven of his novels have been Sunday Times bestsellers and his books are published in 12 languages with a million copies sold worldwide.
