On the run from the redcoats, the two young highwaymen, Will and Bess, find themselves in Galloway, Scotland, blamed for a murder they did not commit. Here they are captured by smugglers and become embroiled in a story of hatred and revenge that goes back for generations, to the days of the Killing Times. Whose side will they take? Can anything they do end the cycle of religious hatred? And will their own friendship survive?

Reviews

'A terrific tale, gripping from start to finish.' The Times

'Excellent...I'd recommend it as a great read for lovers of good fiction.' FirstNews

'As rich and flavoursome as Morgan's first novel, this one develops the political message a little further and finds more ways to relate them to world events of today. It's just as exciting, but the claustrophobic vicious circle of hatred and poverty gives it a darker, less romantic feel. Excellent development for the young reader. Highly recommended.' www.thebookbag.co.uk

'Poignant. An energetic, lively and powerful tale which is even better than its appealing predecessor. As a set text this would appeal to both sexes, and its themes and description provide excellent material for pupils to analyse and of course, enjoy!' www.writeaway.org.uk
