An intrepid band of intelligence officers and warriors, led by Captain James Keane, have been given their toughest job yet by Wellington.

Both British and French armies have retreated from the old university city of Coimbra, leaving it in ruins, the inhabitants destitute and the houses full of wounded from all sides. Infiltrating the streets are Spanish guerrillas who may support either side, local Portuguese determined to avenge the horrors inflicted upon their city and rival spies seeking a book of ciphers, hidden in the famous library of Coimbra, guarded by a dissident Jesuit group.
