Andrew Taylor recommends
The Conjuror's Bird
The Conjuror's Bird (2005)
Martin Davies
"Like all the best novels, The Conjurer's Bird left me with the sense of having learned something. . . . Poignant and beguiling. "

Ratcatcher (2006)
(Matthew Hawkwood, book 1)
James McGee
"Ratcatcher is a richly enjoyable and impressively researched novel - also very gripping. James McGee is clearly a rising star in the historical galaxy and I look forward to Hawkwood's return."
The Fabric of Sin
The Fabric of Sin (2007)
(Merrily Watkins, book 9)
Phil Rickman
"A highly sophisticated crime novel... grips like a clamp."
Shadow of the Past
Shadow of the Past (2008)
(Tobias Campion, book 2)
