The Greatcoats are travelling magistrates bringing justice to all...or at least they were, before they watched the Dukes impale their King's head on a spike.
Now the land's heroes are reviled as traitors, their Greatcoats in tatters. Facio, Kest and Brasti have been reduced to working as mercenaries, but when they find their employer dead - and are forced to watch as the killer plants evidence framing them for the murder - they realise things are about to get even worse.
For the royal conspiracy that began with overthrowing an idealistic young king is spreading to Rijou, the most corrupt city in the land, and the life of a young girl hangs in the balance.
When every noble is a tyrant and every knight is a thug, the only thing you can really trust is a traitor's blade.

So I saw this book on one of the offers that pop up in my emails and decided to give it a try . Generally I read the reviews for a new series/author and buy based on both the description and the reviews and in some cases based on just the narrator If it’s one that I’ve found especially good . This book totally caught me by surprise . It’s exquisitely well written . It’s fast paced , has plenty of humour and action . What really got me though is the author and indeed the narrators ability to make you care about the characters and both what happens to them and how they act . This author is one of those rare individuals with the ability to touch your core with his words . Something I’ve rarely experienced since my days of reading the stories of david gemmell.
I’ve now bought the rest of the series and will review each in turn and keep an eye out for anything else by this author . The narrator is also top notch and is certainly one to keep an eye out for .

Good adventure romp
Really enjoyable listen with overtures of the Three Musketeers but not exactly the Three Musketeers good story keeps even the avid listener interested in the final result will certainly listen to the other books
