Summary (From the publisher):

The dawn of the 15th century and Scotland was plunged into chaos. With the new king, Robert III, ailing and weak, his younger brother, the Earl of Fife, seized his chance to become Regent and Governor of the realm.

Sent to London the appease the English king, George the Cospatrick, 10th Earl of Dunbar and March, forged a lasting friendship with Richard II's cousin, Henry of Bolingbroke, who was to become King Henry IV of England.

On Henry's accssion to the throne, a remarkable situation arose. Robert III's wife asked Earl Cospatrick to use his influence with the English king in order to avert civil war. And so it was that Cospatrick found himself seeking help from the Auld Enemy to right affairs in Scotland.

But Cospatrick's links with the Plantagenets gave rise to wild accusations, and in due course his son, George, Master of Dunbar, was destined to pay the price of his father's alleged treachery. Would the 11th Cospatrick be the last of his line?
