From the award-winning author of Resistance and the highly-acclaimed Special Operations Series, Daniel is a swashbuckling edge-of-your-seat adventure set against the backdrop of England's Glorious Revolution of 1688. Daniel Drake knows little about his family's past and even less about his mother's secret work as a spy for the Dutch prince. Her arrest for treason sparks an adventure in which Daniel travels from Devon to Amsterdam amid espionage, treachery and the preparations for war. During his desperate bid to save his mother from the gallows his family's colourful past reveals itself, including the father he's never known.
