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 that his village has been ransacked and his wife abducted. The dark riders came in the dead of night, like devils, wearing no colours but black crosses on their chests, leaving no clue as to who they are. 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 in Europe, and no man can stand in their way. Until Hugh, taking on the role of a jester, is able to infiltrate the enemy's castle where he believes his wife is being held captive. And when a man is fighting for freedom - for his wife, and for everything he holds dear - he will prove a formidable opponent.

In 1096, Hugh de Luc, a modest French innkeeper, leaves his beloved wife to join the Crusades in the Holy Land. When he returns two years later, he finds that his village has been ravaged by a brutal nobleman, his infant son murdered, and his wife taken into captivity. Neil Dickson reads the story of Hugh with passion and panache. He follows the unlikely hero through the Crusades, and then upon his return, as he takes the guise of a court jester to gain access to the nobleman's castle to find his wife, to avenge his son, and to ultimately lead a rebellion. The story is passionate, tragic, and filled with satisfying action and intrigue. The CD version comes with a bonus disc containing the entire novel in a special audiobook/e-book format that allows PC users to follow along with the text while listening to a synchronized reading.
