“A nonagenarian fencing crime writer with an Olympic medal under her belt, a love of dressage and battling cancer in the only way she knows how – with steely grit and fighting spirit. Fencing is a central tenet of the first part of the story and so it is great fun to work out whom the characters are modeled upon and even where the locations are. Dennis, the aging Lothario who is well-matched with the beautiful Helen, going down 10 hits to 9 after a fight when they engaged blade upon blade; metal to metal A battle of wits, expertise, and skill, two outstanding fencers, nail-biting to the end as Helen’s beautiful finishing balestra once again caught Dennis unawares! The story twists and turns, then leap ahead to encompass a rogue racketeer and hit squad tracking Olivia across the Mediterranean whilst she continues to relive old memories.”Lawrence Burr OBE Sword Magazine
