Our hero is himself a slightly pious and unforgiving man who cheats on his bland wife. However, this is completely in keeping with the era and when you see what the other people in the city are doing de Wolfe comes across as almost saintly! This down and dirty history is always my favourite type, e.g. TVs Rome ...
