Rudolph Rassendyll visits Ruritania, with whose Royal Family he has a connection because of a scandalous sexual indiscretion in the past. When the heir apparent is kidnapped, Rudolph by virtue of his physical similarity to the new ruler, is plunged into a sequence of events in which he is crowned, then must rescue ‘The Prisoner of Zenda’ in order to continue the royal line and pay court to the Princess Flavia - the latter task coming very easy to him as he falls deeply in love. A terrific, original tale much imitated by succeeding authors - but never bettered. Great entertainment and part of literary history!

I was a little uncertain when buying this book as I felt it might have dated. Peter Joyce really makes the book come alive and dramatises it so you feel that you can really see what is happening. I was totally engrossed right up to the end. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a book well written, with a good story and someone reading it who really manages to convey what the author had in mind.
