Excellent sense of time and era, great and realistic characters who stay in the mind, full of action: what more could any historical fiction fan want?...Highly recommended. * HISTORICAL NOVELIST ASSOCIATION * "If you are into historical romps, then you will thrill to the adventures of master swordsman John Lawley... This is as swashbuckling as it comes." * NORTHERN ECHO * "A truly moving masterpiece." * DAILY EXPRESS * I worried that i didn't have the right words or the eloquence to do justice to the book. Yes the book is simply that good... This story has it all; a love story, a family story, History, mystery and intrigue, passion, sex, plots, fighting, infighting, backstabbing...the list could go on and on. It is the complete package.A book this good comes along only rarely and deserves to hit the bestseller list. -- Robin Carter This is a spectacularly good historical novel. Lewd, debauched and pungent on the one hand, but genuinely romantic, honourable and deeply felt on the other... there's spying, rebellion, and adventure, and it's a real page-turner too. -- Richard Lee * GOOD READS *
