BY ADAM HARDY
Fox and his fearsome crew make the sands of the Egyptian desert sodden red with French blood as they open the door to Cairo for the English army.
But their prize is a troublesome band of French prisoners, led by the vile Colonel Pithiviers, whose hatred of England is exceeded only by his loathing of Fox.
And when his ship, Alkon, is separated from the fleet and a French privateer looms on the horizon, the love of Agnes Linnett and the wiles of Fox are put to the test.
FOX IS NOT THE NOBLE HERO OF TRADITIONAL FICTION. FOX IS A FIGHTING MAN WHO TRANSCENDS HEROISM — HE DOESN’T CARE HOW HE WINS AS LONG AS HE WINS. HE’S MEAN, CUNNING AND MOST VICIOUS WHEN TRAPPED. THERE’S NO WAY TO OUTFOX FOX!
