Emotions swing wildly in this tense, intriguing tale of mystery and obsession. Ordinary folk react in dramatically different ways as they are caught up in savage struggles between Anglo-Saxon and British warlords.
The story hinges on a fateful night in the kingdom of Northumbria in AD638. Two young men dig up a priceless treasure hoard and re-bury it on a lonely hillside. Prejudice, greed, fear and jealousy shape the many personal stories which have led the men to this point. Events twist and turn over the next few weeks towards a nerve-wracking climax as they are pulled in different directions, their loyalties tested to the limit repeatedly.
