Thrown into Ms Gregory's inevitable mix are the likes of Margareta and Janzoon, ambassadors from Holland whose poor grasp of the English language leads to unfortunate mispronouncements that gradually raise the offence and ire of the Court. We have the dastardly privateer, Fitzgerald - a man whom even Thurloe fears - who leads the Piccadilly Company with his motley crew of henchmen directed by the openly murderous Brinkes.Read more ›
The continued machinations and intrigues of the Stewart court, the interplay between Clarendon's own entourage and family and the home (and past) life of Chaloner all come into play together as he is challenged on his return from Tangiers to find the thief stealing the building materials for Clarendon's new house.
There are several sub plots and red herrings deviously interwoven as each lead discovered by Chaloner just raises more questions. The solution doesn't begin to unravel until the last thirty pages and when it does it`s a doozy.
The descriptions of restoration London and the Court of Charles II is vividly brought to life to the extent you can smell the streets, hear the commotion and become transported back in time. I certainly spent an enjoyable few hours following Chaloner around not really caring about what was happening around me. I can't wait for the next instalment to see what happens in his various strained relationships; Clarendon, Williamson, Hannah and the intriguing character of Kipps.
Well worth the money.
