The Siege


Anyone else read this Perez-Reverte novel?  A few years ago I read everything I could get my hands on by him (I especially liked the Nautical Chart) and then I more or less forgot about him until last week.  Last week I picked up the Siege (Cadiz, besieged by Napoleon's forces) and while I haven't finished it I am quite enjoying it.  Reasonably good stuff on merchant marine and corsair activities, quite a lot of stuff on ballistics (French howitzers and mortars), what appears to be a serial killer, and lots of Spaniards who - at best - are mistrustful of their English allies.
