It is January 1721. London is reeling from the effects of the greatest financial scandal of the age, the collapse of the South Sea Bubble. William Spandrel, a penniless mapmaker, is offered a discharge of his debts by his principal creditor, Sir Theodore Janssen, a director of the South Sea Company, on one condition: he must secretly convey an important package to a friend of Janssen's, Ysbrand de Vries, in Amsterdam. The package safely delivered, Spandrel barely survives an attempt on his life, only to be blamed for the murder of de Vries himself....

Listener Opinions

    " A story set in 1721 London in the wake of the South Sea Bubble. Keeps the readers interested until the end. "

    " Although a fan of Goddard, this book was bad. The story is never convincing and the main character boring. Goddard at his worst. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katherine | 8/19/2013

    " Not my favourite of Goddard's but interesting historical background. The main character was such an idiot though he was starting to get on my nerves. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maddancer | 7/27/2013

    " Not a bad historical mystery including Holland in its locations. A little predictable but not enough to stop reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Nichols | 6/15/2013

    " I loved the historical element of this as an otherwise poor historian, and Robert Goddard never let's me down on the twists and turns of trust no one and try not to predict the end, just read and see. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 5/31/2013

    " I find I infinitely prefer Goddard's 20th/21st century stories to his purely historical ones. "

    " Gelezen in het NL (Bij nacht en ontij). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 4/7/2013

    " A disappointment. This is about the 10th R. Goddard book I've read, and for some reason, with this one the elaborate plotting just seemed cumbersome, there was too much historical information, and the characters seemed a little flat. Not a great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 eif71 | 1/2/2013

    " Good writing, end was confusing to me & maybe a bit depressing but I liked it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matthew | 11/28/2012

    " What I particularly liked was what a lot of people seem to have disliked, namely the historical detail and political intrigue. "
