Product Description

This is the new 'Fancy Jack' Crossman novel. The Indian Mutiny has almost run its course, but there are still battles to be fought before the uprising is finally put down. Lieutenant Jack Crossman, posted to India from his adventures in the Crimea, finds himself plagued by one Captain Deighnton, who seems determined to duel with him to the death. The reason for Deighnton's animosity appears to run deeper than a simple exchange of insults. When Jack is abducted following the Battle of Bareilly, and accused in his absence of desertion, he has to fight to clear his name - only to find Deighnton waiting for yet another, perhaps final duel...

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the early books 30 July 2007
Format:Hardcover
As the reviewer below remarks, 'Rogue Officer's predecessor, 'Brothers of the Blade', was not the best book in the Fancy Jack Crossman canon. 'Rogue Officer', however, harkens back to the glory of the Crimean books, matching my personal favourites, 'Devil's Own' and 'Valley of Death'. There is a good mix of subterfuge and military action, and readers of the Crimean books will revel in the return of an old face.

If you're thinking of trying a Crossman book for the first time, this would be a good place to start as any. Then go back and read the Crimean books...

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return to form! 13 July 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm SO pleased this series is continuing, I was vastly disappointed in 'Brothers of the Blade', but this new title is as good as any of the Crimea set books. I've been a fan from the start, in fact this is always a favorite genre for me - military, historical fiction and 'Fancy' Jack Crossman stands in good company with Richard Sharpe, Matthew Hervey and the newcomer Jack Steel.
I recommend this book to any lover of military history.

A pleasant and interesting read, though not quite as exciting as the earlier Jack Crossman books set in the Crimea. I had not planned to follow our hero to New Zealand, but I need to know how the story develops, so I will!

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Form 22 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is almost a 'stand alone' book in the series but it is definitely worthwhile reading them in the correct order (i,e Crimea first).
A much welcome return to form after the rather disappointing 'Brothers of the Blade' - Good story line with interesting sub-plots and the re-emergence of old faces. Keep it up for the next one please Gary, and don't make us wait too long.
