"In the time of George III how utterly different were the lives led people in Turkey, Brazil, the Baltic Provinces, Portugal and Persia. Separated by vast distances, over which news then took many months to travel, the majority of the inhabitants of any one did not even know of the existence of the others.
Between 1807 and 1809, handsome, daring Roger Brook - for many years as Prime Minister Pitt's most resourceful secret agent - lived, loved and intrigued in them all. The passages describing these countries in that age alone would make a fascinating travel book, but Evil in a Mask is far more than that."
