“The truth is in his eyes not his actions.” This story flows nicely, following the traditional story arc. Cohen spends a lot of time on the exposition of the novel, none of it superfluous. He sets up the characters and their situations in great detail yet he does so in a fast paced narrative which at no time becomes pedantic. There are a lot of characters, each with an interesting back story, as well as splendid descriptions of their actions as well as the various settings. Even the horse stables is well thought out! The rising action could be considered from the time Reynard reveals his true intentions to his pirate captives until McNamara and Catalina face him in a sword fight to the death. There is never a dull moment here!

Following the climax, an epic pirate battle at sea, the denouement sees everything neatly resolved for both the book’s characters and the reader yet the door is left open for a possible sequel. (Fingers crossed!)
