Description
(Named one of the Best Books of 2014 by Library Journal) The author of The Whiskey Rebels and the Edgar Award winner A Conspiracy of Paper, David Liss here takes us back to 18th-century Portugal in a gripping tale of injustice and redemption. Sebastião Raposa is only 13 when his parents are unjustly imprisoned by the Inquisition and he is forced to flee Lisbon or face the same fate. But ten years in exile only whet his appetite for vengeance, transforming a frightened boy into a dangerous man, determined to right unforgivable wrongs. Well-schooled by bounty hunter Benjamin Weaver in the use of wits and fists, Sebastião returns to his homeland in the guise of English businessman Sebastian Foxx, intending to stalk and punish the ruthless priest Pedro Azinheiro. But in a city ruled by terror and treachery, no enemy can be underestimated, nor can any ally be trusted. Befriended, betrayed, tempted by desire, and tormented by his own demons, Foxx is ultimately forced to choose between giving himself over to his bloodlust or finding justice in mercy.

"Foxx is reminiscent of Lee Child's Jack Reacher: a man with his own moral code who takes on multiple adversaries simultaneously.... Liss has the start of another solidly researched, action-packed historical series here."—Booklist (starred review)
