Publisher's Summary

The Twisted Sword is the 11th in Winston Graham's sweeping series of Cornwall, Poldark.
Cornwall, 1815. Demelza sees a horseman riding down the valley and senses disruption to the domestic contentment she has fought so hard to achieve. For Ross has little option but to accept the summons - and travel to Paris with his family as an 'observer' of the French armed forces.
Parisian life begins well, with an exhilarating round of balls and parties. But the return of Napoleon brings separation, distrust and danger to the Poldarks...and always for Demelza there is the shadow of the secret she does not share even with Ross.

Just magic. Brilliantly read as always!

Absolutely loved it. I have listened to all eleven books. Oliver certainly brings the story alive. You could imagine you are living in the midst of the drama.

Nowhere near as good as the earlier novels

I still enjoyed this book, it still got me out walking the dog every day and I still think winston graham is underrated as a story teller. But it doesn't compare with the earlier books for sheer nail-biting, edge of the seat suspense and drama. There is still loads to learn about the craft of storytelling, but in some ways for bad reasons - by asking oneself what made the earlier books better.
