Description

January 1474, in the deep cold of an ice-bound Danzig: a man is spending a frivolous winter not facing up to his responsibilities ... It is the merchant Niccolo, diviner, soldier, banker to Kings; shunned by all who know him after revelations of hismurderous mischief-making. But his talents are too great to be squandered, and a subtle political dance ensues as rivals in Poland, Venice, and Persia bid for his services in trade and war and diplomacy. Niccolo has lost his family; but he will discover a new purpose in life... Dorothy Dunnett is the author of the world famous Lymond Chronicles set during the sixteenth century, as well as the on-going House of Niccolo series. She was awarded the OBE for her services to literature in 1992. She is married to Sir Alastair Dunnett; they live in Edinburgh.
