"a first rate example of the high adventure tradition with lots of action, intrigue and romance" - R. Lee Holz, amazon.com review

It is 1315 AD. Ireland and Britain are ravaged by bitter war. Rotting in prison, condemned as a heretic, Knight Templar Richard Savage is given a chance of reprieve if he returns to his homeland of Ireland.

There is a catch: He must work as a spy for King Edward of England.

Scotland and England are at each other's throats. The Scots intend to invade Ireland and someone in Ireland is helping them. Savage returns to a land where he can trust no one. Robert Bruce, King of Scotland, is said to possess a mysterious holy treasure, and many are flocking to his cause. Efficient, brutal killers are on the loose and in the middle of it all is Alys de Logan, Savage's former love who he abandoned to join the Templars, who some say has now become a witch.

Amid feasts, tournaments, invasion and war, Savage discovers he left more than just memories behind in Ireland. Can he decide whose side he is really on, where Bruce's secret treasure is and above all, stay alive?

"An excellently written page-turner, with a feel for the period which invites you into the era and keeps you there" - The Historical Writers Association online review

"Intrigues, jousts, pitched battles, lepers, witches, religious dissent, Saracen Assassins, besieged castles and even a dangerous shipwreck. Readers will be fascinated by the detailed descriptions of medieval life in all its filth and glory." - Historical Novels Review Online
