Years of British-led failures have taken its toll on Jacob Murray. Standing alone amidst the aftermath of yet another unfathomable defeat, his thoughts turn north to his wife Maggie and the perilous gulf of wilderness that stands between them like the French abbitas at Fort Carillon. He would pack his grief and exhaustion and head north with his son James, if not for the cruel unyielding attention of a British officer bent on his ruin. For the time being, he fights back his longing and bides his time while the trails slowly shed their winter cover and waits for an opportunity to present itself. Meanwhile Maggie is forced to rely on the kindness of a French priest to keep her safe while she still searches for her family. The sudden, chance arrival of three French brothers changes her course. She now entrusts her life to a stranger as they decide to head north. The fifth novel in the award-winning series, The Gauntlet Runner, Heights of Hell is a fast-paced story that plunges readers into the vast, unexplored forests of 1758 New York and the doomed defeat of another British army. Experience the courage of the Black Watch, the near death of the vaunted Robert Rogers and the raw emotion consuming both Jacob and Maggie as their paths seemingly moves them in the opposite direction.

Unsettling that the author feels the staff at Fort Ti is not very amenable to working with reenactors. I have dealt with the site for many years and always have found them anxious to help with our ongoing research.
Stepping from Bloodlines to Heights of Hell, the story continues to grow with anticipation. S. Thomas Bailey has done an incredible job, I applaud his writing ability. The rating should be higher than 5 STARS!
I read this book so fast I could not believe I got to the last page so fast. Now I can't seem to wait for the next book. Great writing and love this series immensely.
