I've read and enjoyed them all. It did seem ironical how the hero managed to be involved with nearly every significant even of the period.
He often described scenes in a tavern as reeking of sweat and unwashed anuses, which was probably true. It was a shame that the author. Terry Johnston died young.

After I read two of them I looked the authors bio up. Sad indeed it is he passed so young but he left some fine reads behind for us.

Hi

I found it different that he described the SMELLS so much in his books.  This was a good series.  I finished it in 2016, but just saw this thread.
