's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: 2012-books, british, spec-fic

The Folding Knife is only really speculative in the sense that the world of the Vesani Republic is very much like but not quite like the Roman Republic. It follows the life of Basso, a man who rises to be first citizen of the Vesani Republic, immensely wealthy and powerful. Basso is a marvellously amoral character, ruthless and calculating, and I got completely swept up in this saga of a story. Trememendously enjoyable, and I want to rush out and read everything that KJ Parker has ever written.
