"As swashbuckling as a young Eroll Flynn, languidly escaping death with the ease of a teenage James Bond, this is a roaring adventure....the finest series of historical novels since O'Brien." (The Good Book Guide)
"Brilliantly combines meticulous research with a breakneck pace and a terrific sense of humour." (Historical Novels Review)
