oooh didn't know there was a 4th, have you read his other stuff ? Vlad is a great read, very dark but interesting, I haven't checked out the French Executioner stuff as yet

Yeah..Vlad was fascinating in a dark way..There are two in the French Executioner series...The bloke certainly does varied research!
