    This was a atmospheric and dark historic fiction about the cost of getting what you want. I really enjoyed the story line and the plot, and I thought the climax was quite well done, however I wish there had been slightly more emotion at some points in the book. The characters were diverse and interesting and this plot was based on actual historic characters. This is historic fiction so it takes many liberties with the way their actual lives unfolded but it was an enjoyable read.
