This book starts off with a bang, suspicious people hanging around outside doorways, wanted people escaping from temporary lodgings etc. However, the story quickly rewinds back to Charles I and tells of his war, trial and execution, followed by Monck and the return of Charles II. Only then do we really get back to what the point of the book's title indicates. Unfortunately, half the book is gone by that point, which is my principle disappointment, but it's to be assumed there is little factual remaining evidence to cast a longer story. However, overlooking this, it's a fascinating account with good portrayals of the main players.

My Wife bought me this book for my Christmas present, excellent historical read, not for the faint hearted very graphic details, Revenge was very sweet for Charles2, read it over the Christmas period, would recommend.

Very informative but also rather repetitive, reading it shows the hypo racy of both sides, always was a royalist, but Charles certainly pushed his lunch a time or two too many, only three stars because of the repetition, but worthwhile history lesson.

A great page turner but also packed with historical detail

Very readable and a lesson from history about a change in power that can utterly change the fortunes of men previously in charge - unless they are Monk.

A detailed tale on the revenge taken, by Charles ll, on the Parliamentarians who were involved in the revolution which resulted in the beheading of his father King Charles l.

interesting read, but authors rather one sided in their approach. They were definitely rooting for cromwellians.
