Three powerful Norman lords and a dispossessed Saxon thegn watch their steeds race close to the forest of Woodstock. Not just money but fierce pride is at stake.

But soon their attentions are focused on a different piece of land altogether - a stretch of grass outside Woodstock where a murderer's secrets are to be found. Book in very good condition.
