Race of Scorpions
by Dorothy Dunnett
- 534 PAGES
An absorbing tale of political intrigue set in the 15th-century Ottoman empire and throughout the Mediterranean. It's volume three of Dunnett's masterful "House of Niccolo" series, the story of Nicholas vander Poele of Bruges, a young dyer's apprentice who gets caught up in the rivalry for the throne of Cyprus. The characters may be fictitious but the historical footing is solid and the setting credible.
