Third in the Lymond Chronicles. Despite feuding clans at home in Scotland, Lymond is sent to Malta to assist the Knights Hospitaller against the invading Turks. There, he finally meets an adversary who is his match in more ways than one; Dunnett does a fantastic job in creating a creepy, compelling villain. The quiet, subversive conflict grows throughout the book and culminates finally in a breathless and terrible confrontation. Fantastic.
