"Absolutely top notch historical crime fiction set in York during the 1660’s as Royalist supporters hunt down Cromwellian traitors."
An oh-so glorious slice of historical fiction, I wanted to savour yet devour every single page. I will confess to being rather gleeful when I heard that S.G. MacLean was resurrecting the world of Republicans and Royalists, The Seeker series is one of my favourites. This is set in York, after Damian Seeker has flown his turbulent nest, and focuses on his daughter and his friends as well as Lady Anne Winter and her list of suspected traitors. You really could read this as a standalone, but the previous series is so wonderful I recommend filling your book bag either before or after reading The Winter List. S.G MacLean encourages tension and suspense to flow through the pages as an unknown spy lurks readying doom. The search for truth and answers, and the various spying techniques kept me thoroughly entertained and on high alert. Beautifully full of atmosphere, I felt as though I was living in York and experiencing those tumultuous times. The ending by the way is a cracker, so no peaking! I’ve chosen this novel to join our list of LoveReading Star Books, and as a Liz Pick of the Month. The Winter List is a roaring success of a novel as it delves into the deadly hidden world of conspiracy and deception.
