Dal retro di copertina:
Praise for Martin Stephen?s A Desperate Remedy
?Intrigue, highlife, and lowlife are brilliantly interwoven in a thriller that has a compelling vividness and pungency. The historical details are utterly convincing; one can see and smell Jacobean England and hear its inhabitants speaking. I do hope Sir Henry Gresham has a long life.? ---Lawrence James, author of Raj and The Rise and Fall of the British Empire
?Considerable effort has gone into the mucky detail of early seventeenth-century London, and the tale is moved on at high speed by Gresham?s well-timed revelations. Stephen has a good feel for the momentary decisions that can help to shape the course of history---as well, of course, as the cowardice, vainglory, and greed.? --- The Times [U.K.]
?A terrific book.? --- The Spectator [U.K.]
