Publisher's Summary

Don Jaime de Astarola is Spain's greatest fencing master...a man of honor, an anachronism...and the perfector of the deadly unstoppable thrust technique. He lives an ordered and celibate life dedicated to one passion: the art of fencing...until the beautiful and mysterious Adela de Otero destabilizes his tranquil existence, and he finds himself involved in a plot of seduction, politics, secret documents, and murder.


What the Critics Say

"Michael York conveys de Asterola's newfound passions - for love, vengeance and survival - with his own master's touch. He also draws a few laughs with the dry wit that leavens the novel." (AudioFile)

The fencing master and the amazon

A great story with a flavor of the classic novels (like Dumas) narrated by a great narrator.

However, I think it is a pity that this was not an unabridged work.
