Read full description of the books:
July 1805: Napoleon's army masses across the Channel - Britain is within hours of invasion and defeat. Only one thing stands in the way - an obscure government bureau of murky origins and shadowy purpose: The Comptrollerate General for Scrutiny and Survey. And, rescued from a shipwreck, his past erased, Tom Roscarrock is their newest agent. In England, the man who recruited Roscarrock has disappeared, his agents are turning up dead, and reports of a secret French fleet are panicking the authorities. In France, a plan is underway to shatter the last of England's stability. Behind the clash of fleets and armies, there lies a secret world of intrigue, deception, treachery and violence - and Roscarrock is about to be thrown into it headfirst.

Read information about the authorOut now! The 'rare, clever treat' that is 'Treason's Spring'...
Robert Wilton worked in a number of British Government Departments, including a stint as Private Secretary to three successive UK Secretaries of State for Defence. He was advisor to the Prime Minister of Kosovo in the period leading to the country's independence, and now helps to run an international human rights mission in Albania. He's co-founder of The Ideas Partnership, a charity stimulating and supporting projects in education, culture and the environment.
His new historical thriller 'Treason's Spring' is out imminently. It's a prequel to 'Treason's Tide' (hb 'The Emperor's Gold'), which was an Amazon historical fiction Number One, one of Waterstone's 'best new debut novels', and won the Historical Writers' Association/Goldsboro Crown for best debut. 'Sensational... great, intelligent, fun' (Time Out) ' and 'Literary gold... superbly satisfying...beautifully written, wonderfully clever' (Daily Telegraph), it was written in various odd bits of Europe on a computer with no functioning full-stop key, was edited in Russia and Mongolia, and was almost but mercifully not quite blown up by the British Transport Police.
His series of historical espionage thrillers drawing on the archive of the Comptrollerate-General for Scrutiny and Survey also includes 'Traitor's Field', an epic tapestry of the British Civil Wars and 'a new benchmark for the literary historical thriller. He achieves that Holy Grail of utterly absorbing, edge-of-the-seat thriller with a book of ideas' (M.C.Scott). He launched the 'learned, beautifully written, elegant spy thriller' (The Times) 'The Spider of Sarajevo' in Sarajevo on June 28th 2014, the exact centenary of the events it re-tells.
Robert Wilton also writes on the history and culture of south-eastern Europe, works as a life coach and occasional voice artist, and translates Albanian poetry. He divides his time between the Balkans and Cornwall.
