Introducing the unforgettable Jack Absolute. The year is 1777. As the American Revolution rages across the sea, London is swept off its feet by Jack Absolute, the dashing rogue in Richard Sheridan's comedy The Rivals. That is, until the real Jack Absolute, former captain of the 16th Light Dragoons, returns after years abroad to discover this slander of his reputation. Before he can even protest, he is embroiled in an illegal duel over a backstage tryst at the Drury Lane theatre. Jack escapes with his life, only to find himself pressed again into the King's service-this time, as a spy for the British in the Revolutionary War. With his Mohawk blood brother, Ate, at his side-and Loyalist beauty Louisa Reardon on his mind-Jack sets sail for the wilds of North America to face rebellious militiamen, rival Indian tribes, and the incompetence of his own superiors head-on. But when Jack learns there is a traitor in his ranks, he is dispatched as a double agent to root out the secrets of the Illuminati, a secret lodge within the Freemasons with their own agenda in the colonies. With no one left to trust and more blood spilling with each passing day, it's no longer clear if Jack is a spy...or the target. From the streets of London to the bloody battlefields of Saratoga, from forest fights on the Hudson to the seedy corners of wintry Philadelphia, Jack Absolute marks the exhilarating beginning of an epic 18th century adventure and a character you won't soon forget.
