Product description

Review

Praise for Dorothy Dunnett (-)

A storyteller who could teach Scheherazade a thing or two about pace, suspense and imaginative invention (New York Times)

Marvellous, breathtaking (The Times)

A masterpiece of historical fiction (Washington Post)

One of the greatest tale-spinners since Dumas (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

Lashings of excitement, colour and subtlety (The Times)

Vivid, engaging, densely plotted - are almost certainly destined to be counted among the classics of popular fiction (New York Times)

About the Author

Frequently described as the finest historical fiction writer of her time, Dorothy Dunnett earned worldwide acclaim for her blend of scholarship and imagination. She is best known for her two superb series of historical fiction - The Lymond Chronicles and The House of Niccolo - set in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and ranging across Europe and the Mediterranean, and for King Hereafter, the eleventh-century story of Earl Thorfinn of Orkney whom Dorothy believed was also King Macbeth. In 1992, Dorothy Dunnett was awarded the OBE for her services to literature, and in 2014 Dunnett's most enduring hero, Francis Crawford of Lymond, was voted Scotland's favourite literary character - beating the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter and Ivanhoe. Dunnett died 9 November 2001, having sold half a million copies internationally.
