An absolute delight! ...one of the most appealing military gentlemen ever to wear a sword. – Diana Gabaldon, Author of Outlander

The year is 1777. As the American Revolutionary War rages across the sea, London is swept off its feet by Jack Absolute, the dashing rogue in Richard Sheridan's comedy The Rivals.

When the real Jack Absolute, former captain of the 16th Light Dragoons, returns after years abroad he is immediately embroiled in an illegal duel over a backstage tryst at the Drury Lane theatre.

Jack escapes with his life, only to find himself pressed again into the King's service as a spy for the British in the Revolutionary War.

With his Mohawk blood brother, Ate, at his side-and Loyalist beauty Louisa Reardon on his mind-Jack leaves England and sets sail for the wilds of North America.

When Jack learns there is a traitor in his ranks, he is dispatched as a double agent to root out the secrets of the Illuminati, a secret lodge within the Freemasons with their own agenda in the colonies.

With no one left to trust and more blood spilling with each passing day, it's no longer clear if Jack is a spy...or the target.

From the streets of London to the bloody battlefields of Saratoga, from forest fights on the Hudson to the seedy corners of wintry Philadelphia, Jack Absolute marks the EXHILARATING BEGINNING of an epic 18th century adventure.

One of the best historical fiction novels of the Revolutionary War with a charismatic hero.

Fans of Simon Scarrow, Bernard Cornwell, Jeff Shaara and Diana Gabaldon will eagerly follow the adventures of Jack Absolute.

What readers are saying about Jack Absolute:

I love this absolutely delightful, swashbuckling, HISTORICAL THRILLER.

Filled with ACTION, ADVENTURE AND HUMOR... a fabulous, fast paced novel which is hard to put down.

This book is anabsoluteriot...

a fun, rollicking, adventurous good time. He is a bit of a playboy, but I was won over by his heart and personality.

The action is hot, THE INTRIGUE IS CONSTANT, and the historical grounding is convincing.

the kind of BREAKNECK ADVENTURE for which the term rollicking was coined
