In the theatre of war there can only be one victor . . .

August 25, 1689

The English army has surrounded Carrickfergus in Ireland. The brilliant strategist and gunner Captain Holcroft Blood of the Royal Artillery is ready to train his powerful cannon on the rebellious Catholics. But this is more than war for Blood, there is a terrible vengeance that burns in his heart.

July 1, 1690

The Battle of the Boyne must be decisive for King William's English forces if he is to prevail over deposed King James's rebel Irish and French army. And Holcroft Blood is determined to destroy the man who obsesses him: the ruthless French spymaster who murdered an innocent woman he loved dearly.

As battle commences and the wild Irish brigand Michael 'Galloping' Hogan wreaks havoc on the English, Blood's military tactics prove highly effective, until ambush leaves him staring at a hangman's noose.

Will Blood escape to seek retribution or will his personal vendetta during a war between nations commit him to make the ultimate sacrifice?
