Read full description of the books:



In Madrid in 1868, fencing master and man of honor Don Jaime is approached by a mysterious woman who seeks to learn the unstoppable thrust, an arcane technique known only to him. All too soon he finds himself in the vortex of a plot that includes seduction, secret political documents, and more than one murder. Rich with historical detail of a decaying world that agonizes - as does the art of fencing itself - over the ideals of honor and chivalry, The Fencing Master is superb literature and a true page-turner.

Reviews of the The Fencing Master


FREDDIE

Just a terrific book.

ALBERT

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

PHOEBE

A wonderful book, like all the works of this author.
