Does he seek revenge on those who banished him? Or has he returned to clear his name? No one but the enigmatic Lymond himself knows the truth - and no one will discover it until he is ready . . . ________ 'A storyteller who could teach Scheherazade a thing or two about pace, suspense and imaginative invention' New York Times 'Melodrama of the most magnificent kind' Guardian VOTED ONE OF BRITAIN'S FAVOURITE HISTORICAL NOVELS
