Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Disorderly Knights by Dorothy Dunnett, read by David Monteath. 

Summer, 1551, and Francis Crawford of Lymond is in Malta to assist the Knights of St John defend the island from an invading Turkish fleet. But under a weak leader there is dissension in the ranks of the Knights - and the chances of repelling invasion look slim. 

Here Lymond meets Knight Grand Cross Graham Reid Malett - known as Gabriel - a fellow Scot famed for his virtues. It is soon clear that Gabriel's wiles in war and intrigue rival Lymond's own as he attempts to bring his new comrade in arms into the bosom of his scheming. 

And if Gabriel should fail then his sister, Joleta, whose seductive charms no man can resist, is waiting to prevail.

Caught between warring factions and nations, between the wiles of Gabriel and the lascivious charms of Joleta, will Lymond prove strong enough to remain his own man?

Lymond Chronicles

The books in this series are superbly written and have stood the test of time; written in the 1960’s they are as engrossing today as they were the first time I read them.
But now they come to life with a great advantage, a wonderful narrator bringing the characters and settings to life.
Truly the best narration I’ve been privileged to listen to. Thank you.

Sometimes, to hear is to comprehend.

Again, I must have read this book half a dozen times. Each time I have taken in more; but I am no statistician. Listening to it has brought a new depth, a new understanding. Mrs Dunnett’s writing weaves a tightly bound story, and I think this narration slows the action, and the absorption of the tale to a human level.

I love these books. I recommend them for a deep read, not too worthy, not an overt bodice ripper, just satisfying, exciting, and well written. Enjoy!
