About the Book

Passing through London on his way to visit his Welsh grandparents, before sailing to Boston, Massachusetts after the defeat of the French at the “Battle of the Nile”, Richard and Jane are accidentally drawn into a fateful chain of events which will affect history, involving Colonel Despard, an Irishman of French descent, who is masterminding a radical plot to assassinate the King of England, overthrow the government and make Britain into a republic.

Except the plot is being manipulated by the Illuminati, a secret society who orchestrated the French Revolution, and are conspiring to regain control of France from the rule of its First Consul, a despotic young General called Napoleon Bonaparte, who is himself planning to invade England in his own desire to conquer all of Europe, and then the world.

Machen and Jane foil Despard’s plan and he and his secret committee are brought to trial for treason. They are found guilty and due to the non-intervention of Lord Nelson, once a combatant friend of Despard’s, are executed and beheaded.

But this is not the end of Illuminati’s, or Napoleon’s, greater ambition. It continues, driven on by Conor Macnamara, an Irish revolutionist, and now a member of the Illuminati, who has sworn to kill Nelson in revenge for his brother, a member of Despard’s committee. And Lord Nelson is the only one standing in the way of France’s invasion of England, with a sea battle to be decided between the English and French Fleets in the Bay of Trafalgar, off the west coast of Spain.

Will Machen save the day — and also help shape history by discovering the Illuminati’s code and bringing about their downfall?

About the Author
Richard Rees

Richard was born in a village near Wrexham in North Wales, where he spoke only Welsh until he went to school at the age of five. An English Grammar school of the old establishment kind followed, fostering pupil advancement with a no-nonsense but constructive approach that proved formative. But his plans to further his education and develop his creativity, reading English at University, were thwarted by his father who advocated that his son should join him in the family accountancy practice. Torn by dilemma, Richard rebelled by joining the Royal Welch Fusiliers where he saw active service, witnessing at first-hand some of the horrors of warfare in the jungles of the Far East, including the death of his best friend who was shot and killed just yards away from him.
