An interesting concept in search of a story. So the new attractive girlfriend channels the virtuous long deceased mother of a powerful man's only heir. Ho hum. Well written? Yes. An acre wide and an inch deep? Yes. Clearly this is the first in a series. Unfortunately this volume is a few chapters short of an acceptable conlusion.
I always wonder when I see a One Star rating against a bunch of Four-Five Stars what that person saw that the others did not. In this case it must have been the whole book because this story is terrific.
I'm a big Archer fan and count this among his best. It is a great story with classic characters and larger than life motives. It does have a bit of a 'Goodbye Mr. Chips' feel, but it is consistant with the period and settings.
In the end, I wonder if he made it.
