A King's Fear. Next to God

Aust, Kurt: Kongefrykt. Nest etter Gud

This is the fourth historical crime novel starring the sharp-sighted professor Thomas of Boueberge and his assistant Petter Hortten. This time they are employed to avert an attempt to kill King Fredrik IV on his travels through Norway in 1704. Who is behind the conspiracy, and why? As always, the author is accurate in placing his exciting intrigues in an authentic historical setting.

Praise for A King's Fear:

"Overwhelming, entertaining and rich in detail... Kurt Aust is a master at piecing together fiction and historical facts to form great, dazzling illusion of a historical account"
(Dagsavisen)

"Impressive" (Tønsbergs Blad)

"Playful entertainment, saturated in knowledge" (Aftenposten)

"A superiour historical novel from the days of Frederik IV... A consummate novel [...] both when it comes to dramaturgy and historical content"
(Dagbladet)
