Summary, etc.:
"A desperate sea battle; a fortune risked on the turn of a card; a duel at dawn with the loser ... Patrick O'Brian meets James Bond. The year is 1803, and the British Secret Service is contending with a belligerent France under Napoleon. The service suffers a blow in the loss of a prime agent, Thomas Grey, who-despondent at his wife's untimely death-resigns from British Intelligence and departs England for Boston, where he intends to become a lumber merchant. His plan to start a new life is thrown abruptly off course when a French intelligence network attempts to recruit him as an informer, and, in the process, exposes a grave new threat to Britain that Grey can't ignore. Confronting it seems likely to grant the grief-stricken widower a chance of extracting a personal revenge. A relentlessly paced and vividly imagined spy tale, Hold Fast will delight and entertain fans of Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin novels, Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe series, and Ian Fleming's James Bond"-- Provided by publisher.
