As Lancastrian forces struggle to win the English crown in the War of the Roses, Martin Robsart sees his parents killed and his home destroyed. Orphaned and alone, he grows up to serve his cousins, the Yorkist kings Edward IV and Richard III. And the boy becomes first a man - and then a soldier. But on the blood-soaked battlefields of the War of the Roses, he learns the true cost of loyalty and of love - and of betrayal. Treason is a meticulously researched and brilliantly written story that brings the War of the Roses vividly to life - and sheds new light on Richard III. It is a sweeping historical adventure story that is perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, Robyn Young and Simon Scarrow.
