Very involving story
You care about the characters in this story of a man caught in a web of other people's intrigues, and forced to act in the interest of a very nasty pair. the good guys are good folks. That's why you care. You care about the mystery. Nicely historical, the sights, sounds, smells, and almost the taste of the time and place.

If you like Ken Follett
This is similar historical adventure with good setting detail, but it's better than Follett: Better dialogue, more plot twists, no campy sex scenes, no protagonist pathetically and perpetually victimized until final vindication. Lots of spy vs spy vs counterspy. The hero is more swashbuckling rough justice than I like, but I cheer anyone fighting The Corporation, even in 1722. Simon Vance narrates this novel well with his usual panache.
I'll download the next of the series, and I hope Audible features the first eventually.
