Summary

Book 24 in the multiple New York Times best-selling Ring of Fire series.
Seven days in May, 1636
It's spring in Burgundy. The flowers are out and so are the cardinals - of Pope Urban's renegade papacy, now on the run from the Vatican's would-be usurper Borja. Most of the Church's senior leaders have converged upon the city of Besancon, where the Pope plans to offer an ecumenical olive branch to the other Christian denominations with which Rome has been at war.
Fortunately, Urban has up-time help. He can rely upon Cardinal-Protector Larry Mazzare's theological savvy, Sharon Nichols' medical skills, and her husband Ruy Sanchez's keen-eyed experience as a bodyguard-in-chief. And even though Urban has a new Papal Guard in the form of Owen Rowe O'Neill's Wild Geese, Mike Stearns has loaned the Pope a small contingent of the Hibernian Battalion - just in case.
Which is prudent, since Urban and his peace initiative are not merely at risk from Borja's assassins. There is another, more deadly, team of professional killers in town, directed by the man who almost killed the Pope before: lethal Spanish mastermind Pedro Dolor.
Dolor hasn't come to confess murder - he's come to commit it.

The worst of a great series

I am a great fan of the Ring of Fire series and there are some great reads on the series written by some outstanding authors; this isn't one of them! some of it is grindingly boring going into far too much detail the plot is very weak and the characterization bad characters which appeared in other books of the series were made to appear simply boring.
Eric Flint made a mistake to allow his name to be associated with this book its clear from anyone who knows his work he had little or no input to the writing of it.

its great

its agreat political thriller set in the grantville universe. The characters are fun and interesting. The narrator as always makes his characters stand out and has a warm candor to his narration. I like the continuing theme of how its the ideas are more important than the tech that has long impact on the society.
