Review quote

"This is a rip-roaring page-turner with considerable depth. It gives a vivid, authentic flavour of those turbulent times, laced as it is with carefully-worked-in historical detail that's informative without being intrusive. And the characters are engagingly three-dimensional, even the villains."--Historical Novels Review
