BATON SINISTER by Carl J. Spinatelli



Pub Date: June 25th, 1959
Publisher: Little, Brown

A picaresque adventure-romance, set during the reign of the infidel Turk, Sultan Seleiman. Against the broad background of conflict is the story of Marco, the bastard son of Andrea Doria's nephew, his struggle to establish his identity, secure his proper name, and, of course, win his lady. Generous historical detail is woven into this novel, which, despite the inevitability of its happenings, will be warmly received by those readers who enjoyed the author's The Florentine and other novels of the genre.
