Unfinished Business

1635: A Parcel of Rogues (Assiti Shards, #7)1635: A Parcel of Rogues by Eric Flint

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Way back in the second novel of the Ring of Fire series, 1633, Mike Stearns's little sister Rita led an embassy to King Charles of England. They didn't exactly get a warm welcome, instead being clapped into the Tower of London. There they found Oliver Cromwell also imprisoned, since his reputation from the other timeline had gotten to the king.

In 1634: The Baltic War, Harry Lefferts and the Wrecking Crew busted Rita and her team out of the Tower of London. However, Oliver Cromwell remained behind, along with two uptimers: Darryl McCarthy, who wanted to make sure he didn't commit the atrocities in Ireland that made him a hate-object to Irish-Americans, and Gayle Mason, who was sweet on Cromwell.

This is the story of their flight from London, and how they end up in Scotland, trying to break Alex Mackay out of the Tolbooth, Scotland's most infamous prison. And it's the story of Finnegan and his crew of bully-boys who are trying to track down Cromwell, because King Charles sure hasn't forgotten what the uptime histories tell him this man will be doing to him in a few years.
