Review: Traitor’s Field

Traitor's Field (Archives of the Comptrollerate-General for Scrutiny and Survey)Traitor’s Field by Robert Wilton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This entry from the Archives is set within the English Civil War, looking at the intelligence aspects of that conflict between Royalists and Parliamentarians. It is an interesting period of history and the development of the narrative in this particular novel is most interesting.

I didn’t find the novel as appealing as its predecessor, largely I suspect because this particular epoch of English history is not something that immediately grabs my attention. That being said, however, the novel remained an interesting read as well as an interesting insight into the intrigue that lays at the very heart of the abstruse organisation – the Comptrollerate-General for Scrutiny and Survey – on which it was based.
