For those of you who haven't already seen it on Facebook, here's the cover.
Although most of the story is set in Argentina, it starts with Burke in Saint-Domingue (part of modern Haiti), where he fought with the Regiment of Dillon, a regiment made up mainly of Irishmen, but fighting under the French flag. The real James Burke fought in the Regiment of Dillon, but it's not a particularly well-known military outfit. So when Accent Press wanted a cover with a strong image on it, the temptation was to settle for a stock shot of a British redcoat. But I really wanted the cover to be authentic (notice the genuine early 19th century map in the background) and eventually we found a battle re-enactor who likes to dress up in – yes, you guessed it – the uniform of the Regiment of Dillon. And doesn't he look dramatic?
So there we are: a beautifully authentic cover.
