Fiction: Captain Alatriste

I'm finally getting back to reading Captain Alatriste. I started it a while back, but life got in the way and I had to put it down. My copy got hidden in our last, frantic move (we are still not fully unpacked) and was recently found. I'm looking forward to jumping back in, particularly since I now know the identity of the 2 Englishmen.

Forgotten in the greater struggle, the two adversaries on the docks finally manage to destroy each other.

Jo panics when the Sea Devils kill the last of the Unit defenders. She runs through the battle towards the Doctor. The Master takes this as his cue to leave. With the part to his Tardis in his pocket he breaks free from Sgt Benton and evades Sea Devil fire as he flees through the gate. Benton makes a feeble attempt to stop The Master, but pulls his fire for fear of hitting Miss Grant. The Sea Devils have won this day, but the Doctor is still free to resist them tomorrow.
