Album

Cornwell's pacy plots and likeable characters translate well onto audio, and Gallows Thief is no exception. Ruggedly handsome Rider Sandman, of whose career at Waterloo we hear a shade too much, is trying to live down his father's profligacy, win back the absolutely fabulous Eleanor Forest and solve the mystery of a murdered countess in whose case the Home Secretary has taken. The book's richly realised, Regency England scenes of high life and low life are brilliantly projected by James Frain, who enters with impressive completeness into the characters, be they simpering artist, cockney whore, sardonic rake or salt-of-the-earth sergeant. Best of the rest. Gallows Thief. 1820s Britain: after the wars with France, when unemployment was high and soldiers could be paid off, when the government was desperately afraid of social unrest, any crime was drastically punished and thousands were hung. But one could petition the King and an investigation might ensueRider Sandman, a hero of Waterloo, has family debts to repay but when his first steps in the investigations produce a sizeable bribe to look the other way, this only arouses his smouldering anger over the condition of England, a country which he and others in Wellingtons army had fought to. Gallows Thief book. Rider Sandman, having fought Napoleon in the French wars, expected t. This is the first book I've read by Bernard Cornwell and I specifically chose this one because it was set in England during the reign of King George III and it wasn't as dominated by war like the majority of Cornwell's other novels. I liked that this seemed to be equal parts historical fiction and mystery. Cornwell stated in his Historical Note that James Hardy Vaux compiled his 'Vocabulary of the Flash Language' in 1812 during his involuntary exile in Australia. I would be very happy if Cornwell turned this into a series. Written by Bernard Cornwell. Narrated by James Frain. This is likely my favorite book that I've read by Bernard Cornwell. Although he always writes well-researched historical novels, many of them are just a little bit too masculine and military-focused for my taste. With this historical mystery set in 19th century London, he achieves a more balanced milieu. Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders. The books richly realised, Regency England scenes of high life and low life are brilliantly projfected by James Frain, who enters with impressive completeness into the characters, be they simpering artist, cockney whore, sardnic rake or salt-of-the-earth sergeant. The Independent. Sandman is a wonderful character, as yet undaunted by the sleazy streets, dank jails or the looming scaffold, and uncorrupted by politicians, sneering gentlemen or frightening bruisers, an investigator in the making and a brilliant, but very different, hero for all Bernard Cornwell fans.

James Botting laid the ropes on the table and then stepped back. Good morning, gentlemen,' he said smartly. Gallows Thief 2001 is a historical mystery novel by Bernard Cornwell set in London, England in the year 1817, which uses capital punishment as its backdrop. Rider Sandman, a veteran of the Napoleonic Wars, is hired as an investigator as a formality to rubber-stamp the death sentence of a condemned murderer. Instead, he discovers a conspiracy to conceal the real killer. In the slang of the time, a gallows thief, also a crap prig is a person who prevents the hanging of an innocent person.
