This was another delightful book by Will Thomas. I love how the two main characters are such opposites. Barker remains as private and elusive as ever, while Llewelyn has fleshed out considerably in this story, with physical and emotional challenges that I enjoyed. I rather felt sorry for him at the end, with his broken heart and all, but Barker doesn't delay in getting Llewelyn involved in another case so he doesn't dwell on his own miserable condition.

The story took Barker and Llewelyn in an entirely different direction from their profession of enquiry agents and into the relm of undercover agents for the English government. Llewelyn goes along gamely, fully reliant upon his belief that Barker knows what he is doing. And indeed, they both excel at their task. Once again, I really appreciate Thomas's use of the English language of the time. I love it when a book challenges my vocabulary, and this is one of those!
