The Adventures of Thadeus Burke
by Terry Minahan
Meet the Honourable Thadeus Burke, son of a lord launching his career running an insurance business at Lloyd's of London. Yet, if Thadeus Burke hoped to find security and a quiet life there, he could not have been more mistaken.
For where the stakes are high the cunning is low. The underworld finds its way into underwriting, and Thadeus finds himself drawn into the riddles and rewards.
