After reading and thoroughly enjoying the first four of these, I thought that was it. After all, eleven years had passed since the fourth was published. Clearly she had moved on. Then I found this and was completely delighted, first to discover that there was another Robert Carey novel, and second to discover that the quality hadn't fallen off in the intervening decade!
Its a romp, but a romp that respects my intelligence and doesn't mess about with historical accuracy. Here's hoping another decade doesn't pass before I see Sir Robert again.
