MOST SECRET by John Dickson Carr


Email this review


A master weaver of historical fact and inventive fiction here embroils a dauntless 17th century Kinsmere ancestor in deeds of loyalty and courage for his king, Charles the Second, in the matter of the Secret Treaty of Dover. Roderick, barely arrived at court, acquires an enemy, a True Love, and duties as a King's Messenger. Through his irrepressible Dolly, his fustian companion Bygones, and the friendship of the King, Roderick is off on lusty adventures -- with bad (and a good) villains at his heels and rousing fights to prove his devotion to His Majesty. Doff the plumes and rl the cape for a lively, costumed, period piece.
