A soldier returns home from the Napoleonic Wars to find out his father has gambled away his inheritance. Suddenly destitute and with no prospects, he makes a devil of a bargain: prove that a soon-to-be hanged man is guilty in return for money and position. Dark, with great characters and flashes of humour, I loved this book and wish this was part of a series!
