Traitor’s Blood by Michael Arnold

The first book in The Civil War Chronicles sees battle-scarred hero Captain Stryker, ‘the Sharpe of the Civil War’, confront his nemesis.

Once seen in the heat of battle, Captain Stryker is never forgotten.  A hardened veteran of the wars in the Low Countries, he has come home to England to seek revenge on the man who left him for dead and scarred him for life.

Stryker is driven by loyalty rather than conviction to serve King Charles’s cause.  He has no truck with aristocracy, preferring the company of a handful of trusted men, including sometime actor Lancelot Forrester and his foul-mouthed sergeant, Skellen.  But when the existence of a dangerous spy at the heart of the Royalist establishment is discovered, it is Stryker whom Prince Rupert chooses to capture the man before he realises the game is up.

Lightly armed and with only a handful of men, Stryker must journey across a country riven by bitterness and beset by marauding bands of soldiers in a race against time.  But unbeknown to Stryker, someone else is also closing in on his quarry, someone whom Stryker has sworn to kill: Captain Eli Makepeace, his nemesis, the man who nearly destroyed him…
