James McGee has worked in banking, sales, newspapers, the airline industry and bookselling. His interest in the Napoleonic period dates to his first reading of C.S.Forester's The Gun. His series of books feature former soldier Matthew Hawkwood.
Praise for James McGee: * 'Irresistible... rambunctious entertainment' Observer * 'Rumbustious...a darkly attractive hero, terrific period atmosphere and action' The Times * 'Atmospheric and well researched... try it' Daily Mirror * 'Breakneck pace, brutal action, clever characterisation and twisty plotting ...' Reginald Hill * 'Ratcatcher is a richly enjoyable and impressively researched novel - also very gripping. James McGee is clearly a rising star in the historical galaxy and I look forward to Hawkwood's return' Andrew Taylor, author of The American Boy
