January 1793. France has executed its king, and war on Britain declared one month later. Set against this volatile backdrop is the first in a series of cases and adventures for twenty-six year old Yorkshire attorney, John Eagle. After the death of his curmudgeonly partner, John is struggling to establish his practice; he is then put on the case of a prominent Leeds merchant and JP, who has been found mysteriously run through with his own sword.

It soon transpires that a number of individuals have cause for wanting the rich merchant dead. Among an overlapping mosaic of suspects, including the murdered merchant’s son, disgruntled relatives of the people he put behind bars, and local radicals hell-bent on fermenting revolution, John resolves to go it alone.

About the Author

Miles Craven is the pen name of Dr Mike Miles, an exiled Yorkshireman living in North Wales. He completed a PhD in eighteenth-century legal history in 1982, and in the same year gained a postgraduate teaching certificate at Wolverhampton University. He has taught in further education colleges and universities for over thirty years, teaching more subjects than he cares to remember but specialising in History, English Literature and, most recently, Creative Writing. When he’s not writing or thinking creatively he likes to spend time with his family, listen to Renaissance/Baroque music and stroke the dogs – not necessarily in that order.
