From the Publisher:
Captain John Staple is bored by the constraints of civilian life. To shake things up, he takes an invigorating ride across the countryside. A storm forces him to take shelter at a tollgate where the gatekeeper has mysteriously disappeared.
The Captain stumbles into an adventure more thrilling than his days battling Napoleon. While searching for the missing gatekeeper, he inadvertently uncovers a smuggling operation, and his only recourse is to bring the villains to justice and rescue the enigmatically charming young Lady Nell from her unsavory relatives.
