Unknown Ajax was not what I expected. It was rueful and had many great parts but the military and bootlegging aspect of it wasn't for me. I enjoyed the cousins and all their banter, the insipid Grandpapa, the bold speaking Anthea and the ever so clever Hugo (the Ajax). I wanted more romance from The Major and Anthea but was terribly disappointed. Would I read this again? No. However, I am in anticipation of the next Heyer read.
