Gemini Summary

Gemini: The House of Niccolo by Dorothy Dunnett

GEMINI represents the final appearance of Nicholas de Fleury, known in the first book of this series as a carefree 18-year-old apprentice in Flanders. Now in his thirties, despite his enemies, his flair for numbers has launched him on a chaotic career: as a mercenary soldier; as a merchant banker; and now as a man who could find a place in almost any of the kingdoms or republics that made up 15th century Europe. But where? First, he has to go back to Scotland, although he knows men wait there to kill him and his beloved family. If he survives, he must make a choice. He does not know that before that can happen, every skill he ever had will be tested.

About Dorothy Dunnett

Frequently described as the finest historical fiction writer of her time, Dorothy Dunnett earned worldwide acclaim for her blend of scholarship and imagination. She is best known for her two superb series of historical fiction - The Lymond Chronicles and The House of Niccolo - set in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and ranging across Europe and the Mediterranean, and for King Hereafter, the eleventh-century story of Earl Thorfinn of Orkney whom Dorothy believed was also King Macbeth. In 1992, Dorothy Dunnett was awarded the OBE for her services to literature, and in 2014 Dunnett's most enduring hero, Francis Crawford of Lymond, was voted Scotland's favourite literary character - beating the likes of Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter and Ivanhoe. Dunnett died 9 November 2001, having sold half a million copies internationally.
