The hero James belongs to the liar's club a secret group of renegades dedicated to serving the crown. Due to the failure of his last 'mission' he now has the simple! task of finding the daughter of a missing code breaker who is now working for Napoleon.
The heroine is Phillipa Atwater, before her father was captured by Napoleon he sent her to a friend in London but the friend is dead and she has little money and no where to go when it runs out. She sees an advert for the post of tutor for a man who is named in her fathers book - but is he a friend of a foe, she has to find out, so hair cut and disguised as a young man she applies and gets the job of tutoring Robbie an ex chimney sweep boy now James's heir.
You might wonder why James never spots that the tutor Phillip is a girl but the author has James always preoccupied with all the bad stuff that happened on his last 'mission' and in that state he never gives her a 2nd look. He never fancies or is drawn to the young tutor but does have a fantasy about a belly-dancer, so Phillipa turns up as one!
Phillipa's adventures as Phillip are humorous and mix well with James' struggles in espionage.
The book can be read stand alone (as I did). It is more an adventure story with a bit of extra romance. All the supporting characters are good and Phillipa comes across really well and you want to know what happens next to her.

Yes this third book follows the Liars Club and still keeps you on the edge of your seat. The heroine spends a lot of time disguised as a man making for some comic moments. The danger and romance is very believable and again you are left wanting more... can't wait for book four!!
