Six Sentence Sunday

Today's six sentences follows on from yesterday's sample from my current WIP, which now has a name!  Vidal's Honor.

Thanks for your visits and support, they're all appreciated :-)

“Those men ambushed your husband in the open. To do that they had to assume they were invincible. That means they not only knew he was more than a scout for Lord Wellington, but they knew his orders for that day, which means Napoleon had an agent in the camp, someone close to your commander in chief.

“When Wellington routed Marmont at Arapiles those men probably slipped away without detection during the various conflicts or even when Wellington chased Marmont’s retreating troops hoping their disappearance will become just another statistic of any battle casualties.”

Spies? And counter spies and agents?

And her wonderful Dev, the man who loved her so tenderly, protected her so strongly, and danced with her in the moonlight only hours after their wedding had been a spy?
