About this title:

Synopsis: With a Note From the Author.

In the year 1592, Sir Robert Carey, a handsome courtier, comes north to Carlisle to take up his new post as Deputy Warden of the West March. He has wrangled his appointment to be nearer to his true love, a married woman, and farther from the gimlet eyes of his creditors and the disapproving eye of his father (the Queen’s cousin―possibly her half-brother). And of course, he can use the money....

Sir Robert is quick to realize he won’t see a profit from the perks if he fails to keep the peace. Alas, he is quickly challenged by the murder of a local lad, the possible betrayal of a disappointed rival, the ire of the lady’s husband, and the question of the horses―the hundreds of horses being stolen from all over the neighborhood. It’s hard to say whether the greater danger lies without the city walls amidst the scheming Scots―or within, amidst the unruly English garrison.

Rich in atmosphere and packed with vivid real and fictional characters, few novels are as well imagined or as much fun as this romp through roguish courtiers, rival gangs, rustling, treason, and high ambition.

About the Author: P.F. Chisholm is a pseudonym of a well-known writer of historical thrillers, childrens’ books, and non-fiction blogs and ebooks. Previous titles in the Sir Robert Carey and Sergeant Dodd series are A Famine of Horses, A Season of Knives, A Surfeit of Guns, A Plague of Angels, A Murder of Crows, and An Air of Treason. www.patricia-finney.co.uk

Book Description Hodder and Stoughton, London, 1994. Hard Cover. First Edition, First Printing. Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Bound in full black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. 271pps. The heel of the spine is miildly bumped and, as ever, the pages are faintly yellowed (due to the acid content of the stock). Otherwise, excellent: clean, square, and soundly bound. No apparent reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a touch of crinkling at the head of the spine; no chips, soiling, or tears. The original price of 16.99 (U.K) is intact on the front flap. ".In the year 1592, Sir Robert Carey, a handsome courtier, comes north to Carlisle to take up his new post as Deputy Warden of the West March. He has wangled his appointment to be nearer his true love, a married woman, and farther from the still eye of his Queen and the disapproving eye of his father. And of course, there's the money. Sir Robert is quick to realize he won't see a profit from the perks if he fails to keep the peace. Alas, he is quickly challenged by the murder of a local lad, the possible betrayal of a disappointed rival, the ire of the as-yet-unbetrayed husband, and the question of the horses--hundreds of horses being stolen from all over the lands lying between England and Scotland. Rich in atmosphere and packed with real and fictional characters, few novels are as well imagined or as much fun as this romp through rustling, treason, and high ambition." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
