Some Danger Involved: Barker & Llewelyn Series, Book 1 Unabridged
The edition I have is the Folio edition and it has a great photo of Israel Zangwill.. I feel the same way about politicians. In the middle of 3, The Limehouse Text, I must say that I am curiouser and curiouser about this author who is favorably fascinated by people of different cultures, with occasional words I have to take a moment to look up "hyberborean," "farrago" , and with a studied appreciation for a time period and with history, historical figures and mores made enjoyable by being served up with delightfully accessible characters. Oh, my. To write like this one day! Keep writing, Will Thomas.
