  • England, 1191. Richard the Lionhearted, cutting a swathe through the Holy Land in his quest for glory, has left the realm bankrupt and leaderless. Only Prince John, his name blackened by the lies of his enemies, seems willing to fight back the tide of chaos that threatens the heart of England a wave of anarchy embodied by the traitorous troublemaker known as ‘the Hood’.

    But John has a secret weapon: Guy of Gisburne outcast, mercenary, survivor of Hattin, and now knight a man wronged by Hood, disavowed, disinherited and all but destroyed by Richard. As an agent of John, he is sent to do his bidding and outwit enemy agents bent on England’s destruction. With his world-weary squire Galfrid in tow, and equipped with some deadly 12th century gadgetry, Gisburne’s first quest takes him from the Tower of London, along the pilgrim routes of France to the hectic crusader port of Marseille leading him into increasingly brutal, bloody encounters with the man they call ‘The White Devil’: the fanatical Templar, Tancred de Mercheval. Relentlessly pursued on his way back to England, and aided by the beautiful Mélisande de Champagne who has a secret of her own Gisburne battles his way with sword, lance and bow. Through icy mountain passes and wolf-infested forests, he hurtles towards the inevitable, bitter confrontation at the Castel de Mercheval. But beyond it if he can survive lies an older and even more unpredictable adversary.
