I bought this to complete my set of Wheatley historical novels chronicling the activities of the fictional Roger Brook through the events of the late 18th century and early 19th century. A very palatable way of familiarising oneself with the events of those turbulent times. Highly recommended for the high quality of authorship and the detailed historical perspective. There is not a trace of the occult genre in these books, they are entirely straightforward.

I really enjoyed this part of the Roger Brook saga. Following a duel with a Venetian diplomat that he is meant to charm, Roger flees the country and travels to India to take in the sights. This time he has picked on the wrong man, however, and he ends up in a mortal struggle with a James Bond-esque villain that takes him all over the world. The plot is cracking with lots of twists, while the historical details is top notch as usual.

Something i love about the series is how Roger is portrayed sympathetically but without hiding his conceited views about the lower classes. This makes for a much more realistic and 3 dimensional character.
