fit-Ludo sets off for Amsterdam. His voyage is interrupted, first by a timid English priest with a message from Rome, then by a storm, then by a pirate raid. The storm brings him a quick-witted young admirer he uses as a spy. The pirate raid brings him a girl, Alina, who won't go home. Each development has significant consequences for Ludo's plans and even greater ones for the people he is involved with. Set in a world of international politics and domestic intrigue, The Chosen Man spins an engrossing tale about the Dutch financial scandal known as tulip mania-and how decisions made in high places can have terrible repercussions on innocent lives.

The Chosen Man is a novel with everything going for it: a cracking story centered on an intriguing and charismatic hero... the author wants to pull you in and entertain you. And succeeds triumphantly. I'm keeping my fingers crossed there will be more." -- Sarah Harrison author of The Flowers of the Field trilogy
