The Officer’s Prey

(Les Proies de l'officier)

Author Armand Cabasson


The second in the Napleonic Murder trilogy


This title is not yet published, but can be pre-ordered


June 1812. Napoleon begins his invasion of Russia. But among the troops of the Grande Armée is a savage murderer whose bloodlust is not satisfied in battle.

When an innocent Polish woman is brutally stabbed, Captain Quentin Margont of the 84th regiment is put in charge of a secret investigation to unmask the perpetrator. Armed with the sole fact that the killer is an officer, Margont knows that he faces a near-impossible task and the greatest challenge of his military career.

‘The author ably combines the two elements of murder investigation and epic war novel, providing the reader with the historical background in a convincing but naturalistic way that does not interfere with the flow of the story.’ Eurocrime
‘[Cabasson] draws on his extensive knowledge of the era to create accurate portrayals of the time and people’ Napoleon Series
