Guns in the North, Hardback Book

Description

1592. Robert Carey, eighth son of Lord Hunsdon, has - to his servants' dismay - abandoned Queen Elizabeth I's court and is heading north to take up the post of Deputy Warden of the English West March, a lawless badlands, peopled by cattle-rustlers, horse-thieves, arsonists, kidnappers and murderers created by centuries of Anglo-Scottish conflict.

Carey, in his lace-collared, pearl-sashed courtly finery, will be expected to bring order to this bloody flux.

Plunging readers straight into the raucous world of late sixteenth-century border reivers and unfettered Elizabethan intrigue, Guns in the North, the first chronicle of Sir Robert Carey's adventures, collecting the novels A Famine of Horses, A Season of Knives and A Surfeit of Guns under one volume.

A Famine of Horses (c) 1994. A Season of Knives (c) 1995. A Surfeit of Guns (c) 1996.
