HASH(0xa197a18c) out of 5 stars So Real! June 16 2009
By Shirley Schwartz - Published on
Format: Hardcover
These Thomas Chaloner books are so real that it's hard to keep realizing that I am reading historical fiction as I read them. The main reason for this is that Ms. Gregory uses real historical people and happenings in these books. The books are set in England during the first years of the Restoration after King Charles II is back on the throne. Chaloner is a wonderful, larger than life hero. He is a spy who works for the new regime even though his family were big Cromwell followers before the Restoration. He must live by his wits in a truly dangerous and scary world. This book is set around Christmas in the year 1663. It appears that someone is going around London killing court clerks and Chaloner has been tasked by his Earl to find the killer, and to retrieve a priceless bust that had been stolen right from the palace. Chaloner finds himself in all sorts of dangerous situations, and the action keeps going right until the very end. These books are a wonderful escape for anyone who loves historical fiction like I do! This was number four in the series.

HASH(0xa197a1e0) out of 5 stars The best so far July 2 2010
By E. L. Fough - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've read all the Matthew Bartholomew series and now all the Chaloner series. I have to say, this one is, in my opinion, the best of the Chaloner series so far. I have not gotten bored while reading it. I have a hard time putting it down at breakfast and actually leaving for work. Very well done and I do recommend it.
HASH(0xa197a618) out of 5 stars a good anti-depressant Oct. 11 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you need to relax, to forget everyday chores and troubles, to skip depression, Chaloner's adventures are the right thing. You get involved in the romp, run around Restoration London with him, you never stop, sleep or eat with him, you smile at his ironic eye and feel for his honesty and generosity. In the end you will be as exhausted as Chaloner himself, but you will also pronounce yourself thoroughly satisfied. The prose is fluent and keeps the pace almost to the end. But you can be indulgent with Ms Gregory's little flaws, in the certainty that she has in store another Chaloner exploit waiting for you when your brain needs some brisk exercise .
HASH(0xa197a600) out of 5 stars Good period mystery. Aug. 30 2014
By P. Greene - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The fourth Restoration period mystery. As with all Gregory's books, the plotting and atmosphere are well done. One gets a good sense of life in Restoration times. And as with the prior 3 Chaloner books, it's a little difficult to keep all the characters straight. Although, it was somewhat easier this time around. A list of characters would be appreciated. Now it's on the 5th in the series.

Once again, the author really makes you feel, hear and smell the living conditions of the times. It is a rare author who does enough research to make the reader truly feel a part of history.
