Publisher's Summary

London 1759...and Jack Absolute's life is easy. A scholar at Westminster School, a master with the cricket bat or billiard cue, he has both a girl he worships and a courtesan teaching him the ways of the world.

Yet he plans to give up all carousing and begin a new life - if he can just stay out of trouble for one night.

After duels, battles, frantic escapes, and a brutal winter in a Canadian cave, the school boy will vanish and a man will appear. To come of age, Jack Absolute must be blooded.

Critic Reviews

"As swashbuckling as a young Eroll Flynn, languidly escaping death with the ease of a teenage James Bond, this is a roaring adventure....the finest series of historical novels since O'Brien." ( The Good Book Guide)
"Brilliantly combines meticulous research with a breakneck pace and a terrific sense of humour." ( Historical Novels Review)
