Synopsis

1700 and East India Company Governor Elihu Yale is back in London, seemingly intent on reconciliation with his wife Catherine after ten years of separation. But those ten years have given her a taste of independence that she's not ready to easily surrender. The ghosts of her previous life continue to haunt her, however - yet another former foe returned with her husband and seemingly still intent on revenge. And a more evil enemy still, in the shape of that Jacobite Colonel John Porter who had caused such damage to her youngest daughter. Drawn back even further into espionage on behalf of her nation, Catherine must battle madness, her desires, the rifts in her family, riot, rebellion and assassination in this tumultuous third and final act of the Yale Trilogy.

David Ebsworth is the pen name of writer Dave McCall, a former negotiator and workers' representative for Britain's Transport & General Workers' Union. He was born in Liverpool but has lived in Wrexham, North Wales, with his wife Ann since 1981. Following his retirement, Dave began to write historical fiction in 2009 and has subsequently published nine novels: political thrillers set against the history of the 1745 Jacobite rebellion, the 1879 Anglo-Zulu War, the Battle of Waterloo, warlord rivalry in sixth century Britain, and the Spanish Civil War. His sixth book, 'Until the Curtain Falls' returned to that same Spanish conflict, following the story of journalist Jack Telford, and is published in Spanish under the title 'Hasta Que Caiga el Telon'. Jack Telford, as it happens, is also the main protagonist in a separate novella, 'The Lisbon Labyrinth'. Each of Dave's novels has been critically acclaimed by the Historical Novel Society and been awarded the coveted B.R.A.G. Medallion for independent authors. This ninth novel, 'Wicked Mistress Yale, The Parting Glass', is the third in a trilogy about the life of nabob, philanthropist (and slavetrader) Elihu Yale, who gave his name to Yale University, but told through the eyes of his much-maligned and largely forgotten wife, Catherine.
