Few survive. Escape, it?s said, is impossible.

Yet reports persist of a sinister smuggling operation within this brutal world - and the Royal Navy is worried enough to send two of its officers to investigate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm still in love with Hawkwood! This is the third book about Bow Street Runner Matthew Hawkwood, and I still love him as much as I did in the first book! In this outing, Hawkwook is sent undercover on a prison ship to discover what happened to two previous agents who've disappeared. The book includes all the kinds of suspense, intrigue, danger, humour and excitement you'd expect from a book called "Rapscallion" (I just LOVE that title!) and it will keep you on tenterhooks right to the end to see if the good guys best the bad guys! The character of Hawkwood is terrific! He's exactly the sort of slightly battered and disillusioned, living outside the the establishment, doesn't play by the rules but still ultimately has honour and a heart of gold guy you can root for and swoon over (if you're a girl, that is!). I loved this book, and highly recommend it!
