Product Description A young Englishman, Tom Swan, finds himself in the midst of the Turkish siege of one of the riches islands in the Genoese Empire. Swan's biggest problem is that he hates the Genoese a good deal more than he hates the Turks. Despite which, he has to catch the spy, steal the ring, kill the traitor, and if possible rescue the princess. Or maybe just bed her Product Description A young Englishman, Tom Swan, finds himself in the midst of the Turkish siege of one of the riches islands in the Genoese Empire. Swan's biggest problem is that he hates the Genoese a good deal more than he hates the Turks. Despite which, he has to catch the spy, steal the ring, kill the traitor, and if possible rescue the princess. Or maybe just bed her. All duty, of course. So he can get home to the Cardinal, his boss, and his wife, the most beautiful woman in Italy. Suddenly he's a Knight, a man of action, a leader of men. And none of those are roles he asked for. From the Knights of Rhodes to the court of Mehmet II and Pope Pius II, Swan has to use his sword-and his wits-just to stay alive. And married.

    What a finish to Tom Swan's adventures in Greece. It's a nicely tied up and well-paced last leg of the journey. ‘To Belgrade!’ The only problem with Swan’s plan was that it depended on several people behaving in predictable ways, and Swan knew that at any point, he could simply be killed. Some parts of the plan would then continue to function, but –despite the order’s teachings –Swan wasn’t very interested in the functioning of his plan after his own death.

    Not since now I've been this obsessed with a series that my friend had to advise me to give my eyes some rest. Not since now I've been this obsessed with a series that my friend had to advise me to give my eyes some rest.

    Consider this a review for all of the books that make up this tale. Bloody good, I had some issues with identifying some characters throughout the book and at times was a little lost in the politics. But overall enjoyed the story. Tom Swan is a very likable character, he's intelligent, a history buff, great fighter and a heart breaker. Basically, he's really fun to read. Great tale, keen to read more 8/10 Consider this a review for all of the books that make up this tale.

    The last adventure in Greece is a good one. It is a very packed adventure, it moves very quickly and basically is all about one hectic plan of a man, who does not want to be dead. A few nice tricks and twists and revelations were put to the light at the end making it a very solid read. I loved my time with Tom Swan and will return to know what happened to him at Belgrade!

    Great series I very much enjoyed this series of short chapters from Christian Cameron. I have been burning through every book of his I can find since I discovered Killer of Men.

    I have called each of these short stories an episode, i do this because this series feels like some of the best episodic short stories i have read. It would make an amazing TV series that would make programs like the Tudors, Spartacus or Borgias' pale in comparison. Christian has a clear love of Greece, history, weaponry, fighting skills, Italy.... and on and on. He is a true renaissance man, He is in my mind the inspiration for Tom Swan.

If there was a time machine the author would have been off already, but lacking that he travels in the mind and fortunately takes us with him. Tom Swan 6: you may expect battles and sword fighting, and there is some of that, but the fighting is intimate, and built around intrigue and elements of misdirection, planning to a degree that is unexpected, bringing together strands that began in each episode. There is also great humour, great compassion, camaraderie, humility and personal growth. Couple that with the PTSD that Tom Swan clearly still carries from the last episode and this is a stunning end to a brilliant series.... And Season 2 is on the horizon. Highly Recommended (Parm)

    Buen final a esta primera miniserie de Tom Swan. Mucha acción, algo menos de política que en las dos entregas anteriores, aunque con un complot por parte de gran parte de los protagonistas del que no entendí nada hasta prácticamente el final del relato. Pero a pesar de eso me entretuvo bastante esta historia de piratas/monjes-guerreros contra los Turcos. De la siguiente miniserie han salido ya 6 relatos (creo que serán 8) y seguro que la empiezo a leer este verano.

    Nice conclusion to the Tom Swan St George set of short stories. Book 6 tied up the loose ends. Not a ton of new suspense. I somehow got confused with some of the characters in this one - a bit surprising after reading the previous 5. I think these are best read consecutively to keep context and characters in-sync.

    Read on release and while still not at the level of #4 which is the best of the series so far, it overcame the "middle" problems of #5 and had enough of a resolution to tie up the second cycle The main issue is that the structure - Tom gets into trouble over his head but savers the day (at least in a fashion) - is becoming a bit repetitive so hopefully the promise change in scenery will help Read on release and while still not at the level of #4 which is the best of the series so far, it overcame the "middle" problems of #5 and had enough of a resolution to tie up the second cycle The main issue is that the structure - Tom gets into trouble over his head but savers the day (at least in a fashion) - is becoming a bit repetitive so hopefully the promise change in scenery will help

    Enjoyed the series overall and it seems well researched. Writing skill was good. However, I am not liking the serial format (this was my first). I prefer a complete novel.

    As with all the installments very well done. My only complaint is how long ago I read the last part. I'll not do this again. With the next book I'll have all the parts before I begin to read them As with all the installments very well done. My only complaint is how long ago I read the last part. I'll not do this again.
