Product description


'Pushed as "the Sharpe of the civil war", Captain Stryker is a character well able to attract readers on his own merits . . . The novel ends with the Battle of Hopton Heath in the spring of 1643. Many of the most famous engagements of the civil war are still to come, and the enigmatic Stryker's involvement in them promises much entertainment' - Sunday Times

'A dark-hued romp, livid with the scents, sounds and colours of a country on the brink of implosion . . . impressive' - Daily Express

'If you love Sharpe, you'll be knocked out by the 17th-century civil war adventures of Captain Innocent Stryker . . . at times this one-eyed veteran makes Sharpe look rather civilised' - Peterborough Evening Telegraph

'Arnold is at his best describing real events . . . if you like Cornwell you will like Arnold' - Historical Novels Review

'Heart-thumping action . . . Arnold brings the English Civil War to colourful life' - Lancashire Evening Post

'A thumping good read. With considerable skill, Arnold has reached back in time to create a living, breathing depiction of 17th century England. From his vividly described battle scenes to the richly drawn descriptions of everyday life, from the earthy vernacular of its characters to the precise details of military equipment, every last part of this book oozes authenticity. Fans of Cornwell's Sharpe novels will love Captain Innocent Stry

COMING IN MAY: Corpse Thief, Part One

Michael Arnold's interest in British history is lifelong, and childhood holidays were spent visiting castles and battlefields. He became a Sharpe junkie at the age of 13, and his particular fascination with the seventeenth century was piqued partly by the fact that his hometown, Petersfield, is steeped in the history of the period. Michael is the bestselling author of The Civil War Chronicles, featuring Traitor's Blood and Marston Moor.

Michael is the first historical series novelist of our time to have used the English Civil Wars as his backdrop, and, in his exclusive sequence of Highwayman novellas, turns his attention to the period when England was a republic.

In May 2019, Mike will embark upon a brand new historical crime series, set in London just after the Regency period. But who is Joshua Hawke, the Corpse Thief?
