Freedom - in eleventh-century France, it is a luxury enjoyed by only the King and nobility. For the serf, it is surely worth fighting for. But is it worth dying for?
Arriving home disillusioned from the Crusades, Hugh DeLuc discovers his village has been ransacked and his wife abducted. Dark riders came in the dead of night, like devils, wearing no colours but black crosses on their chests. Knights they may be but honour and chivalry are not part of their code. They search for a relic, one worth more than any throne, and no man can stand in their way. Until Hugh, disguised as a jester, is able to infiltrate the enemy's castle where he believes his wife is being held. And when a man is fighting for freedom - for his wife, and for everything he holds dear - he will prove a formidable opponent.
THE JESTER is a breathtaking, pulse-pounding adventure. No one who has ever hoped for good to defeat evil or for love to conquer all will be able to put down this masterful novel.
