Captain John Staple's exploits in the Peninsula had earned him the sobriquet Crazy Jack amongst his fellows in the Dragoon Guards. Now home from Waterloo, life in peacetime is rather dull for the adventure-loving captain. But when he finds himself lost at an unmanned toll-house in the Pennines, his soldiering days suddenly pale away beside an adventure - and romance - of a lifetime.

    " This was a romance/mystery, although quite a bit more mystery than romance. Excactly what we've come to expect from this author; very well written, and if you like intrigue, this should keep you interested right up until the end. "

    " This is an odd Heyer book in that it's a male-driven plot. Yet, I liked it quite well, particularly the setting and the almost Doyle-like subplot of smuggling. A pleasant surprise overall. "

    " In some ways this is one of Heyer's best, but a bit unusual for her in that the romance is accomplished in a few pages (love at first sight!), while much more of the story is focused on a mystery and a murder. Good stuff. Also the liberal doses of common dialect as well as the slang of the ton makes either for entertaining or frustrating reading. I didn't mind it, even though there is a lot of it! "

    " A bit of romance (not particularly convincing, but apparently people who are tall fall in love with other people who are tall thoroughly at the drop of a hat - or the opening of a gate, in this case), and a fabulous amount of Adventure - it's like Georgette Heyer does Tom Sawyer. Highwaymen! Caves! Dead guys! Abandoned Children! Sly Grandparents! Confused Agents of the Law! Socks! Leather Vests! All the escapism you could ask for with some giggles for good measure. "
