Publisher's Summary

This third volume in The Lymond Chronicles, the highly renowned series of historical novels, takes place in 1551, when Francis Crawford of Lymond is dispatched to embattled Malta, to assist the Knights of Hospitallers in defending the island against the Turks. But shortly the swordsman and scholar discovers that the greatest threat to the knights lies within their own ranks, where various factions vie secretly for master.

Brilliant, beautiful page-turner!

Dorothy Dunnett is the greatest historical novelist, and this is one of her best. You should read/listen to the first two in the series first, but THIS book is the one where an antagonist's campaign against Francis Crawford's protagonist reaches new heights, and depths of depravity, driving the story to a riveting, devastating climax. David Monteath's narration brings new levels of understanding to the beautiful words, new shadings of characterization to the rich personalities on the page. Don't hesitate to listen to this one!

Superbly narrated

David Monteith creates a perfect rendition. Ideally paced, dramatic but not overdrawn, light where needed.

Historical suspense thriller!

Brilliantly combines historical intrigue and conflicts of the 16th century with some of the most fascinating fictional characters ever created. Narrator David Monteath’s dramatic skills enhance Dunnett’s gorgeous writing. I’ve read this book several times, but couldn’t stop listening to this new audio version.
