LM Shakespeare is the writer of the acclaimed 17th-century historical novel Malice and of three modern financial thrillers. Monsieur Law thrillingly combines these two worlds.  

France, following the death of Louis XIV, was bankrupt, but into the court of the Regent there arrived a Scot called John Law, whose courage combined with a brilliant financial intellect briefly fired the whole country with a wild excitement which very nearly succeeded. This is history in the genre of Munich and Wolf Hall

    Everyone read it! You all have to read this wonderful book

  • Ian Wadhams

    History is the King of subjects. Numbers is my job. The brilliance of this book combines both in delightful writing, with human success and disgust adding to the enjoyment. Please read Malice first.

  • Christine W

    An elegant, beautifully written narrative in the single voice of an early 18th century courtier, Berthon..... Rich in psychological insight, as well as all the accuracies and nuances of court life, the novel gradually reveals Berthon's dismay and increasing distrust of the bold, clever, but ultimately insidious influence of the wily Scot, John Law, and his scheme to rescue France from its financial bankruptcy.
