Description - Race Of Scorpions by Dorothy Dunnett

Princes, merchants and mercenaries vie with one another in subtle intrigue, in business vendettas, in flamboyant war across the small states of fifteenth-century Europe. There are fortunes to be grasped - but Niccolo, precocious hero of Trebizond, former dyeshop apprentice and manager of the remarkable Charetty Company, has turned his back on his friends and the bank he has founded. He feels compelled to seek freedom. He is not to find it. Elusive, resourceful, with his own private army and a magical gift for affairs (in every sense), Niccolo is in demand. The sharp-witted throne against a dangerous rival. Whether he likes it or not, Niccolo is seduced into a contest between scorpions - whose sting can bring death. Race of Scorpions is volume three in The House of Niccolo Series.

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.
