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)

Book Description

It is 1557 and legendary Scottish warrior Francis Crawford of Lymond is once more in France. There he is leading an army to rout the hated English from Calais.
