More Description

In six robust novels, Dorothy Dunnett has chronicled the life and times of Nicholas de Fleury, the audacious merchant-adventurer whose exploits illuminate the tumultuous changes sweeping through 15th-century Europe. As Caprice and Rondo opens, Nicholas has exiled himself to Danzig, having willfully brought down shattering ruin on his family and associates, the "House of Niccolo". But his history soon catches up with him, as the demands of princes and churchmen and the secrets of the de Fleury clan seem destined to send him farther away from them than ever -- to the Crimea, Persia, Russia -- in the dangerous East.

Lady Dunnett's devoted fans -- growing daily in number, thanks to the recent republication of her Lymond Chronicles -- will be thrilled by Caprice and Rondo, in which she gives the first clues to the mysteries that surround Nicholas. For longtime readers and new converts, Dorothy Dunnett once again works her magic, re-creating the complex world of the early Renaissance in scenes of cinematic vividness, through characters imbued with all the faults and virtues of authentic men and women.
