Wow...this book has everything, truly believable storyline, with in depth research into dates, times and history. A different subject from this relatively new author. I found I was absorbed from the beginning with the acute feeling I was actually part of the storyline. I could almost atune to the feelings and reasonings of the main character. The conclusion of this book means London would never be the same again. A truly versatile author with an eye to detail and I look forward to his next book
