    History has not been kind to Alice Perrers, the notorious mistress of King Edward III. Scholars and contemporaries alike have deemed her a manipulative woman who used her great beauty and sensuality to take advantage of an aging and increasingly senile king. But who was the woman behind the scandal? A cold-hearted opportunist - or someone fighting for her very survival?

    Annette says: "guilty as charged."
    "Wonderful Book!"
    Overall

    This book is a wonderful read! I enjoy historical books that are not dull and academic in it's telling and this one is just the one!! It keeps your interest and makes you want to listen more! I could not commute to work as I do without good books like this one!

    Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana - he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

    At 12, Gideon Crew witnessed his father, a world-class mathematician, accused of treason and gunned down. At 24, summoned to his dying mother's bedside, Gideon learned the truth: His father was framed and deliberately slaughtered. With her last breath, she begged her son to avenge him. Now, with a new purpose in his life, Gideon crafts a one-time mission of vengeance, aimed at the perpetrator of his father's destruction. His plan is meticulous, spectacular, and successful.But from the shadows, someone is watching. A very powerful someone, who is impressed by Gideon's special skills.

    a jack reacher story maybe


    How could the performance have been better?

    different orator


    What character would you cut from Gideon's Sword?

    all of them


    Any additional comments?

    I adore the Pendergast series, so I thought this new series would be just as great. How wrong was I? This is boring and the characters have NOTHING interesting about them. I mean really? A 30 something cute guy? How dull! Like an idiot I bought both books without listening to the first one. I will NEVER make that mistake again!
