England, 1100. King William Rufus is killed with an arrow on a hunt. Rumours start immediately that he was murdered. Nineteen years later, in France, the poet Hilary the Englishman meets a strange man who offers to buy Hilary a meal if he does him a favour. He gives Hilary a pouch of silver, and a message to be delivered to Count Fulk in Anjou. But by morning the man is dead, and the crows are feasting on his body. Fearing he will be accused of murder, Hilary flees. But now he is pursued himself, and also by the murderers. He knows only one man can help him. His former teacher, the brilliant Peter Abelard…
This is a rollicking chase, a hunt for the truth before it is too late – for Hilary to save his own life and the lives of many. It is also a medieval detective adventure in the style of Umberto Eco, Ellis Peters and Ken Follett. It brings the early twelfth century to glorious life.
“There are so many great characters (real and fictional) and the narrative prose is so strong that it’s easy to get carried away with this book, completely forgetting that there is a real world out there!” Amazon review
