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.
