Paul Fraser Collard cover reveal – The Devil’s Assassin

October 29, 2014, Article by Tom in Books

We loved The Scarlet Thief, the debut novel from Paul Fraser Collard, in which we were introduced to the heroic and rather cool Jack Lark. His adventures continued in the The Maharajah’s General, and now he’s back in The Devil’s Assassin.

Set in India in 1857, it sees Jack’s heroic but fraudulent past uncovered by the Devil – Major Ballard, the army’s intelligence officer. Ballard is gathering a web of information to defend the British Empire, and he needs a man like Jack on his side. With secrets crucial to the campaign’s success leaking into their enemies’ hands, Ballard brings Jack to the battlefield to end a spy’s deceit. But who is the traitor?

The Devil’s Assassin is published in hardback and ebook in January, and we’re delighted to be able to reveal the rather snazzy cover right here, right now…


ALSO COMING SOON: Rogue, Recruit and Redcoat, a series of ebook novellas featuring Jack Lark and set before the events of the The Scarlet Thief. Rogue is out this December, with the next two adventures following in 2015. Keep your eyes peeled for more info, but here are the covers to whet your appetite.
