London, 1664. Twenty years after the English revolution, the monarchy has been restored, and Charles II sits on the throne. The men who conspired to kill his father are either dead or disappeared. Baltasar “Balty” St. Michel is 24 and has no skills and no employment. He gets by on handouts from his brother-in-law Samuel Pepys, an officer in the king’s navy. Fed up with his needy relative, Pepys offers Balty a job in the New World. He is to track down two missing judges who were responsible for the execution of the last king, Charles I.

Great historical novel! Funny and intelligent story and dialogue. James Langton's performance was amazing! So many different characters and accents and he makes you feel like a different actor played each one. Hope Mr. Buckley continues Baldy's story in another book!
