Publisher's Summary

The Greatcoats are back - and this time it's personal.

How do you kill a Saint? Falcio, Brasti and Kest are about to find out, as someone is doing just that, and they've started with a friend.

The Dukes were already looking for ways to weasel out of their promise to put Aline on her father's throne - but with Saints turning up dead and Church Inquisitors pushing for control, rumours are spreading that the gods themselves oppose her ascension.

The only way Falcio can stop the country turning into a vicious theocracy is to find and stop the Saint killer - but his only clue is the iron mask encasing the head of the Saint of Mercy, which prevents her from speaking. And even if he can find the murderer, he will still have to face them in battle - and this may be a duel that no swordsman, no matter how skilled, can win.

Love this series.

I am really enjoying this series, always twist and turns, I finished the third book in less than a week, excited for the fourth book. If you like swashbuckling, romance, intrigue, and every other adventurous word I can insert, you will enjoy this book.

A really enjoyable series

Yet another superb book in the greatcoat series full of action with a slight bit of humour. Can't wait to read next instalment. The narrator does a brilliant job of bringing the character to life

Next thrilling instalment

I’m loving there books. I really enjoyed the last two and this one is not a let down either. Thankfully, I came to these late and didn’t have to wait for the next one to become available so was able to move straight to the next book.

Straight onto book 4

Well, what can I say? this has been another excellent addition to what is now one of my favourite new-ish fantasy series. I have loved learning more about the characters motivations and in turn seeing their more "human " and vulnerable qualities. Roll on book 4!

Excellent narration and voice acting

I've listened to three of these book now and I have to say the narrator is excellent. I dare say it is a bit easier having fantastic source material./ a really good listen.

Well written

While i got a bit sick of everyone’s smart mouth, this was a well written story. The plot is original, but the characters grated on me a little after a while.
