Hawkwood: A Regency Crime Thrillerby James Mcgee
A couple of years ago, I was stuck in Japan for an entire day because of the volcanic eruption in Iceland. I had the brilliant notion to watch three Japanese horror movies in a row while waiting, and as a result, I found it difficult to fall asleep at the hotel in which they kindly put me up. Fortunately, someone had abandoned the first two installments of the Hawkwood series by James McGee in the lobby. They were my lucky find. Darkly atmospheric, fast paced, riveting, and possessing an attractive and mysteriously reticent hero, I was hooked from beginning to end.
