This was not my usual read in a book, but found the history and story most interesting - recommend!

Not a very memorable read, but a good one to pass the time. Don't think I'll buy any more in the series.

Well written adventure that embellishes the life of a rogue. Somewhat unbelievable that this person could make so many 'intelligent' decisions enabling him to become so wealthy. His apparent sensitivity to what was happening does not match well to his background.
