Checkmate by Dorothy Dunnett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow! What an ending to a spectacular saga! I leave to other reviewers to summarize. Some have done so excellently. But, better yet, I suggest if you are interested in engrossing reads, tackle this series, prepared for ups and downs much like you encounter in real-life personal relationships. While difficult, it will also prove rewarding.
