Product description


"The characters are colourful, the historical setting is interesting, and Hingley's use of language really puts you in the mindset of reading something historically based in the 1600s. I would certainly recommend it to fans of the genre as it immediately put me in mind of C J Sansom."--Cozybookworm

"The portrayal of Charles II's court is full of colour. ... there's a strong sense of the fragility and vulnerability of Charles II's reign."--For Winter Nights

"A very readable historical yarn set in the time of King Charles II. ... An enjoyable whodunnit."--The Halcyon Days of Summer

"Traitor is my first experience of a book by David Hingley but put me down as hooked! ... The plot is full of twists and turns ... Traitor is a cracking historical mystery, full of colourful characters, with an intriguing story line and an evocative sense of the period in which it is set."--What Cathy Read Next

"This was a well paced romp, with plenty of twists and turns for Mercia to overcome and keep the interest of the reader, against the backdrop of the war with the Dutch."--The Book Bug

"I love good historical fiction and I love novels with an awesome female lead and this series has both. ... a story I thoroughly enjoyed and a series I have loved and would thoroughly recommend."--The Overflowing Library

"This is a fascinating look at the profligate court of King Charles II and of the dangers which so often lingered in shadows. ... The mystery, at the centre of the story is well thought out, and there are more than enough twists and turns to keep the adventure alive in the imagination. I found it quite refreshing to have a female lead protagonist who didn't conform to the usual rigid protocols which were so evident at this time in history. Traitor is an intriguing journey into the political arena of the mid-seventeenth century."--Jaffareadstoo...

"The stench of the Southhampton docks, the London streets and the smell of fear were evident from the first page. ... [Mercia] is a great character with plenty of personality."--The Book Trail

"Hingley's blend of real and imagined people and events brings the Restoration vividly to life. Mercia is a fantastic heroine, smart, resourceful and determined. Hingley has clearly researched the period well ... I really enjoyed the first two books but this is definitely the strongest so far."--Rambling Mads

"Readers will be rewarded with a splendid dual-climax of naval battle where even those watching from the shore will be far from safe. This was a period when England's whole future was in doubt, a simmering cauldron of possibility. The author, with boisterous enthusiasm, has seized on this promising situation, making the most of it by writing this exciting novel."--Historical Novels Review

About the Author

Originally from the Midlands, David Hingley worked in the Civil Service for eleven years before leaving to fulfill his long-term ambition to write. He spent three years living in New York, close to the action in Birthright and Puritan, before returning to the UK in 2016.
