England stands divided: king against Parliament, town against country, brother against brother.His loyalties are to his own small band of comrades - and to Queen Henrietta Maria's beautiful and most deadly agent, Lisette Gaillard. entrusts him with a secret mission to discover what has happened to Lisette and the man she was protecting - a man who could hold the key to Royalist victory - nothing, not false imprisonment for murder, ambush, a doomed siege or a lethal religious fanatic will stand in his way.

Read Review   Want to write a review?
An action-packed, dramatic novel set in an England divided at its very core. This is gripping stuff that will keep you up at night'
A thundering, swashbuckling yarn that will get the blood of all Sharpe fans pumping. And this is a thundering, action-packed debut for Captain Stryker a veteran of the wars in the Low Countries and staunch supporter of the Royalist cause. It is to Stryker that Prince Rupert turns when he needs someone to root out a dangerous spy in the ranks. But, Stryker finds himself on a collision course with a sworn, ruthless enemy'
Mike Arnold hooks the reader with the clash of steel and the roar of gunpowder. Rollicking action and proper history combine in this cracking series'
'Michael Arnold has caught all of the passion, urgency, fear and exhilaration of men in battle. Not only that, he's writing in a period that he obviously knows intimately and in to which he has breathed new life'
>
A fast-moving, exciting novel . . . Forget Sharpe and enjoy the exploits of Captain Stryker in an earlier and dangerous period of history. Once hooked you will look forward to the next in this series'
An intensely interesting, plot-driven historical novel of superb quality . . . I found it very difficult to put down until the final page'
I loved Sharpe.  I am going to be equally at home with Captain Stryker'
Powerfully visualised battle scenes which can certainly stand in comparison with the best of Cornwell'
You can smell the gunpowder and hear the cannon fire . . . Arnold's passion for the period suffuses every page'
Praise for Traitor's Blood:

'Captures the grittiness, as well as the doomed glamour, of the Royalist cause'
Arnold has joined the ranks of Cornwell and Sansom...'
'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 Stryker - he's uglier, meaner and cleverer than Sharpe. Tremendous!'>
Arnold is at his best describing real events . . . if you like Cornwell you will like Arnold'
Heart-thumping action . . . Arnold brings the English Civil War to colourful life'
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'
A dark-hued romp, livid with the scents, sounds and colours of a country on the brink of implosion . . . impressive'
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'
Michael Arnold's Devil's Charge featuring the battle-hardened English civil war veteran Captain Stryker, skilfully blends the author's own inventions with the real events of 1643'
