About this title

Synopsis:

Whenever injustice and oppression occur, a Robin Hood emerges. In Northern Knights, his name is Bob Brunet. His story is set in Northern Wisconsin during the Great Depression of the 1930's. The settings are modeled after authentic Wisconsin locales. While Bob's marriage to Marian Alcott is in progress, Sheriff Roland Blue bursts into the church to arrest him. He's falsely accused of theft by his old nemesis, Gil Quennel. Bob and his best man, Will Scathlock, flee, taking refuge in the nearby Manitou Hills. The novel follows Bob's efforts to exonerate himself, to regain his property, and to help others who have been swept off their property by ruthless land baron, Gil Quennel and banker John King. Bob believes that kidnapped Richard King is the one person able to right the wrongs in the county, and he's unflagging in his attempts to rescue him. Left to her own resources, Marian proves her mettle as a detective, too. Attempting to solve the mysteries, Bob's framed for the murder of a former employee. The witness who accuses him is herself murdered. Bob is blamed for both crimes and lands in jail. Obstacles galore thwart Bob and Marian before the astonishing conclusion.The novel follows Bob's efforts to exonerate himself, to regain his property, and to help others who have been swept off their property by ruthless land baron, Gil Quennel and banker John King.
