1854, the banks of the Alma River, Crimean Peninsular: the Redcoats stagger to a bloody halt. The men of the King's Royal Fusiliers are in terrible trouble, ducking and twisting as the storm of shot, shell, and bullet tear through their ranks. Officer Jack Lark has to act immediately and decisively. His life and the success of the campaign depend on it. But does he have the mettle, the officer qualities that are the life blood of the British Army? From a poor background Lark has risen through the ranks by stealth and guile, and now he faces the ultimate test. . . The Scarlet Thief introduces us to a formidable and compelling hero—brutally courageous, roguish, ambitious—in a historical novel as robust as it is thrillingly authentic, by an author who brings history and battle vividly alive.

About the Author:

Paul Fraser Collard is the author of the Jack Lark tales.

Review:

Sharpe fans will be delighted to welcome a swashbuckling new hero to follow... Marvellous fun * Peterborough Telegraph * I really like reading debut books, to see who are the stars of the future, and Paul Fraser Collard is most certainly one. Book two cannot come soon enough for me * Parmenion Books * I love a writer who wears his history lightly enough for the story he's telling to blaze across the pages like this. Jack Lark is an unforgettable new hero * Anthony Riches * This is a brilliant debut and I look forward to reading more of Jack Lark! * Bernard Cornwell *
