In this book we have his usual mix of historical fiction woven in and around historical fact.
The hero of this story is a disgraced former knight of the order of St. John Sir Thomas Barrett who had been forced to leave Malta and the order after an illicit affair.
Twenty years later he receives the call to arms in the Orders hour of need. Following a summons from his former mentor Jean Parisot de la Vallette, he returns to a Malta that is threatened by the imminent invasion of the Muslims.
In a sub plot he is forced to accept as his untrained squire Richard, a spy in the service of Walsingham whose mission is to locate the whereabouts of a document secreted in Malta which could have serious repercussions for Elizabeth I should it fall into the wrong hands.
What follows is a very good book with Scarrow's usual well written and gripping edge of the seat fight scenes.
I can heartily recommend this riveting book.
