Product description


MacLean has the first-rate historical novelist's gift for making bygone political and religious squabbles seem rivetingly relevant, and communicates her passion for the period without downplaying its brutishness - Daily Telegraph (on A Game of Sorrows)

MacLean is a terrific storyteller - Big Issue

Combines the ironclad plotting of Sansom with the artful recreation of Mantel - Independent (on A Game of Sorrows)
