In this 5th of 6 books in the Lymond series, which should be read in order, Lymond is in Stamboul, not Scotland, when he goes to Muscovy, to create an army for the half-mad Tsar, Ivan the Terrible. His friends manage to get him to England, in spite of his desire to return to Russia. Of the series of 6, this is my least favorite. Still, it's a tremendously exciting book, and the ultimate end of the series can be guessed at. Dunnett's a wonderful writer.
