Wonderful story. Always enjoy the weaving of well-known as well as little-known historical facts into the story. The resarch into these little-knwon facts to bring the reader actually back to the times and places Alex finds himself in is interesting and informative. I like the way the book ended, and am ever hopeful that a new Alex Balfour story will be written.
I like the author's style of writing. My own wide scope of history and historical novels allows me to really enjoy the small tidbits of

Recommends it for: Any and all.
The latest (and hopefully not last) novel in the Alex Balfour books. Alex is a history professor with a genetic (and uncontrollable) predisposition to travel into the past. I may be biased because the author has become an acquaintance, but on the other hand, I "discovered" his writing before we became acquainted. So . . . these really are terrific stories. "In Time of War" may be the best of the lot.

I started out loving this book. Just as I did the previouse three books. But when I got to the end I was appalled. The ending of this book ruined the whole set for me. I have no desire to read any other works by this author.
