The tiny island of Run is an insignificant speck in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago remote tranquil and now largely ignored At the beginning of the seventeenth century however Run s harvest of nutmeg turned it into the most lucrative of the Spice Islands precipitating a fierce and bloody battle between the all powerful Dutch East India Company and a small band of ragtag British adventurers led by the intrepid Nathaniel Courthope The outcome of the fighting was one of the most spectacular deals in history Britain ceded Run to Holland but in return was given another small island Manhattan A brilliant adventure story of unthinkable hardship and savagery the navigation of uncharted waters and the exploitation of new worlds Nathaniel s Nutmeg is a remarkable chapter in the history of the colonial powers, In a band of communist revolutionaries stormed the Winter Palace of Tsar Nicholas II a dramatic and explosive act marking that Vladimir Lenin s communist revolution was now underway But Lenin would not be satisfied with overthrowing the tsar His goal was a global revolt that would topple all Western capitalist regimes starting with the British Empire br i Russian Roulette i tells the spectacular and harrowing story of the British spies in revolutionary Russia whose mission was to stop Lenin s red tide from washing across the free world They were an eccentric cast of characters led by Mansfield Cumming a one legged monocle wearing former sea captain and included novelist W Somerset Maugham beloved children s author Arthur Ransome and the dashing ice cool Sidney Reilly the legendary Ace of Spies and a model for Ian Fleming s James Bond Cumming s network would pioneer the field of covert action and would one day become MI br Living in disguise constantly switching identities they infiltrated Soviet commissariats the Red Army and Cheka the feared secret police and would come within a whisker of assassinating Lenin As Giles Milton chronicles for the first time in a sequence of bold exploits that stretched from Moscow to the central Asian city of Tashkent this unlikely band of agents succeeded in foiling Lenin s plot for global revolution, In Sir John Mandeville left England on an extraordinary thirty four year voyage He returned and wrote a book claiming it was possible to circumnavigate the globe br br For centuries none doubted Sir John and many regarded him not Chaucer as the father of English prose br br But in the nineteenth century sceptics questioned his voyage and suspected that he never left England at all They said that The Travels was a work of imaginative fiction br br The Riddle and the Knight unearths clues about Mandeville s voyage and reveals the The Travels is built upon a series of riddles which have until now remained unsolved br br The Riddle and the Knight draws on Sir John Mandeville s Travels and the accounts of contemporary adventurers to bring the hitherto unexplored areas of the medieval world vividly to life, Situated on London s Foster Lane there is a quintessentially Georgian redbrick house with a green door bearing the sign trencoms It s the home of the Trencom family s cheese store a generational establishment begun by Humphrey Trencom that now years later is run by Edward Trencom Quaint though it may seem it bears witness to a strange occurrence of accidents that seem to befall every generation of the curd loving family br Edward Trencom has bumbled through life relying on his trusty nose to turn the family cheese shop into the most celebrated i fromagerie i in England This was no ordinary nose but one long aquiline and furnishing the trademark circular bump over the bridge the very same nose bestowed on all the Trencom men It was extraordinary able to discern the composition maturity and quality of cheese and the Trencom noses had sniffed whiffed and judged the very best cheeses of the world br But on an ordinary day Edward s world is turned upside down when he stumbles across a crate of family papers To his horror he discovers that nine previous generations of his family have come to sticky ends because of their noses When he investigates despite his grandfather s caveat never to look into the origin of his nose Edward finds himself caught up in a Byzantine riddle to which there is no obvious answer And like his ill fated ancestors he is hunted down by rival forces whose identity and purpose remain a total mystery br Trapped between the mad the bad and a cheese to die for Edward Trencom s nose must make a choice and for the last nine generations it has made the catastrophically wrong decision br Giles Milton s deliciously comic debut novel is a mouthwatering blend of Tom Sharpe and P G Wodehouse From the noble Roquefort to the piquant i poisses i every page is permeated by the pungent odor of cheese br br Praise for Giles Milton br br He has a rare ability a talent for sifting fine pearls from faraway sands and for transmuting the merely arcane into little literary gems br Simon Winchester i The i i Boston Globe i br br Milton spins a fascinating tale Exuberantly eccentric characters stride the pages i Time i magazine on i Nathaniel s Nutmeg i br br In an exceptionally pungent amusing and accessible historical account Giles Milton brings readers right into the midst of these colonists and their daunting American adventure Janet Maslin i The New York Times i on i Big Chief Elizabeth i
