During the French Wars of Religion only fools walk the streets at night unarmed, while a profession of faith in the wrong company can lead to a knife in the back.
Lawlessness and religious hatred threaten to tear the whole country in two. Now an adult, Pierre de Siorac must travel south on dangerous roads to the great university town ofMontpellier, accompanied by his strapping but naive brother Samson and the crafty Miroul.
Well-armoured, with swords and pistols at their belts, the trio are confident of repelling any bandits who cross their path, but away from the safety of their Perigord home they will encounter many new dangers, and delights.
