The Thrilling Sequel to Steam and Stratagem!

The Mission to Locate Napoleon’s Steamships Continues...

Having successfully negotiated steamship contracts with Their Lordships of the Admiralty, Roberta Stephenson, steamship engineer, must now aid her country with intelligence gathering. No-one has glimpsed Napoleon’s steam-powered pyroscaphes, and there are disquieting rumours of a steam battleship—one even larger than Roberta’s Spiteful.

As Commander Worthington patrols the coast of England aboard the Spiteful, Roberta sneaks into Antwerp with Lord Bond. With stolen American passports and assistance from the Dutch Resistance, their success seems assured.

The mission, however, quickly unravels. Symington Holmes and Captain McNab disappear, Lord Bond’s false identity is compromised, and Fouché, Napoleon’s spymaster, takes an interest in the group.

Roberta must keep her wits about her because the success of the mission—and of the War—depends on her and her ability to fool one more person...Napoleon himself.
