Publisher's Summary

Winner of the 2015 CWA Endeavour Dagger for Historical Fiction.

London, 1654. Oliver Cromwell is at the height of his power and has declared himself Lord Protector. Yet he has many enemies at home and abroad. London is a complex web of spies and merchants, priests and soldiers, exiles and assassins.

One of the web's most fearsome spiders is Damian Seeker, agent of the Lord Protector. No one knows where Seeker comes from, who his family is, or even his real name. All that is known of him for certain is that he is utterly loyal to Cromwell and that nothing can be long hidden from him. In the city, coffeehouses are springing up, fashionable places where men may meet to plot and gossip. Suddenly they are ringing with news of a murder.

John Winter, hero of Cromwell's all-powerful army, is dead, and lawyer Elias Ellingworth is found standing over the bleeding body, clutching a knife. Yet despite the damning evidence, Seeker is not convinced of Ellingworth's guilt. He will stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice - and Seeker knows better than any man where to search.

    "DON'T DON'T DON'T"

    The narration is so bad, a drawling monotone that is just someone saying the words not reading them.
    Dull as ditchwater
    Whoever commissioned this guy as narrator needs publicly flogging.
    If you feel you just absolutely must have this book - listen to the sample then imagine 9 odd hours of that dreary rambling.

    "Could stand the narrator"

    We didn't get very far listening to this as the northern droll drone of the narrator was totally abysmal. Is was a voice that managed to get on the nerves whilst not actually putting any words into your brain!

    "Fabulous"

    I loved it! Brilliantly written with many twists and turns it kept me guessing until the end. Nicholas Camm voice is hypnotic and draws you into the story. At no point did I have to guess who was speaking. I can't wait for the next one.

    "Probably a good book, but hard to tell"

    I loved the Alexander Seton series, but the monotonous mumble of this reading made the story very hard to follow. The reader can only do one accent, his own, and what should have been an exciting tale constantly lost my attention.

    "Listen at 1.25 speed"

    This is an excellent story, but the narrator is very soporific. Rather than not listening though, I listened at 1.25 speed (on my iphone) and found it perfectly OK. I'm glad I persevered as it really was an excellent story

    "excellent on historical detail,"

    but the narrator has a monotonous drone and makes no effort to differentiate the voices of the characters.

    "Loved it 🦅"

    I was totally engrossed - and what is more, convinced - by SG MacLean's creation and the London streets he walks. Numerous deft touches make both materialise and breathe, with the absolute nuanced perfection of Nicholas Camm's narration; I wait to welcome The Black Friar into my library.
