William Falkland is in a bad place. Having lost the trail of his missing wife and daughter he gets into a fight at an inn in Uxbridge and is thrown into jail. Yet again though Cromwell has need of Falkland and sends his man Warbeck to rescue Falkland from his fate. John Milton, the famous polemist, is concerned that his sister has gone missing and Falkland is taken with finding her. However some parties don't want her found and Falkland finds himself at the centre of warring factions at a time when an end to the Civil War is in sight.

Having enjoyed the first book about William Falkland, The Royalist, I looked forward to reading this one and I wasn't disappointed. The unpleasantness of life for the poor is described with real sympathy but brutal realism. The plot is a little complicated and not really resolved as clearly as it could be, the book feels a little porridgy towards the middle but the last hundred pages skip by with a lot of action. In setting his novels during the Civil War, Deas is creating a furrow of his own in terms of 'historical detective' novels and both parts of the genre - background and plot - are both solid and interesting.
