As he confronts his faceless enemies, he is forced to dig deep into the world of King John which has somehow become inexorably tied to his own.King John may have been one of the most controversial, perhaps most hated monarchs of Medieval times, best known for reluctantly signing the Magna Carta and inspiring the legends of Robin Hood, but he was not a barbarian. He fought takeover battle after takeover battle where the stakes were power or death, just as they now have become for David.With each mystery unraveled, another appears to block Grossmans path until he is thrown on a trail where he must face the very question of who he is. Finally, the path to redemption beomes only possible by a life and death fight with the very realm of European power which no business experience has prepared him for, an institution which wrote the book on business strategy.“It’s a good piece of work, well plotted, deeply complex and rewarding to read.” Ted Wood, author of 14 novels in the 1980s including Dead in the Water and Snowjob, winner of the Scribner Award.
