In 1803 it seems nothing can stop Napoleon Bonaparte from invading and conquering England. So, Prime Minister William Pitt creates a plan to thwart his deadly enemy. He recruits and finances a French royalist general, George Cadoudal, giving him the order to kidnap or kill Bonaparte and restore the Bourbon monarchy. Cadoudal comes within an ace of fulfilling his mission, but Bonaparte proves he is a master tactician and a mean detective when he unravels the murder plot. In order to rule as Emperor of France, he constructs his own ruthless plot that will cost many lives. This fictional account is based on historical characters and the testimony of Bonaparte and his contemporaries.
