Dorothy Dunnett
Dorothy Halliday Dunnett grew up in Edinburgh, a student of music and art who never had any ambitions to be a writer. She went to work at Britain's Ministry of Information in the 1940s, and in 1946 married the man who was her boss, Alexander Dunnett. The couple lived in Glasgow, where Dorothy was a professional portrait painter. It was her husband who suggested, as a lark, that she begin writing a series of historical novels. Her first attempt, THE GAME OF KINGS, was rejected by British publishers, so she submitted it to G.P. Putnam's Sons in America, where it was published in 1961--the initial novel in the fabulously successful "Lyman Chronicles." Dunnett went on to write other novels in several different series and also wrote mysteries under her maiden name. Widowed in 1998, Dunnett had two sons and two grandchildren.
From the Publisher
First Line On the day that his grannie was killed by the English, Sir William Scott the Younger of Buccleuch was at Melrose Abbey, marrying his aunt.
Annotation Francis Crawford of Lymond goes in search of his young son, who is hidden somewhere in the Ottoman Empire. Ostensibly, Crawford is on a mission to the Sultan that will determine the fates of three continents--and his son becomes a pawn in a dangerous international game that includes treachery, enslavement, and torture.
Editors Note For the first time Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles are available in the United States in quality paperback editions.Pawn in Frankincense is the fourth in the legendary Lymond Chronicles. Somewhere within the bejeweled labyrinth of the Ottoman empire, a child is hidden. Now his father, Francis Crawford of Lymond, soldier of fortune and the exiled heir of Scottish nobility, is searching for him while ostensibly engaged on a mission to the Turkish Sultan. At stake is a pawn in a cutthroat game whose gambits include treason, enslavement, and murder. With a Foreword by the author.
Editors Note 3 Lymond cuts a desperate path across the Ottoman empire of Suleiman the Magnificent in search of a kidnapped child, though finding that child may place the Scots adventurer irrevocably in the power of his enemies. What ensues is a subtle and savage chess game whose gambits include treachery, enslavement, and torture and whose final move, played within the harem of the Topkapi palace, compels Lymond to make an unthinkable choice -- and face the darkest ambiguities of his own nature.
