About the Book

1700 and East India Company Governor Elihu Yale is back in London, seemingly intent on reconciliation with his wife Catherine after ten years of separation. But those ten years have given her a taste of independence that she’s not ready to easily surrender. The ghosts of her previous life continue to haunt her, however – yet another former foe returned with her husband and seemingly still intent on revenge. And a more evil enemy still, in the shape of that Jacobite Colonel John Porter who had caused such damage to her youngest daughter. Drawn back even further into espionage on behalf of her nation, Catherine must battle madness, her desires, the rifts in her family, riot, rebellion and assassination in this tumultuous third and final act of the Yale Trilogy.

“The diaries of our protagonist, Catherine, take us at breathless speed through the early years of the eighteenth century, narrated with a delightfully sardonic eye for character and detail. She is living at the sharp end of history and she is not a woman to mess with. The book is brilliantly researched, packed with fascinating detail, a wonderful evocation of the period. I enjoyed it enormously.”

Barbara Erskine, Sunday Times bestselling author of The Ghost Tree and Lady of Hay
