Publisher's Summary

Pisa, May 1364.

Sir William Gold is looking forward to a lucrative career as a hired sword in the endless warring between Italy's city states. But when a message comes from the Grand Master of the Hospitaliers, William is forced to leave his dreams of fame and fortune behind him.

The Hospitaliers are gathering men for a crusade, and Sir William must join them. Yet before they set out for the holy land, the knights face deadly adversaries much closer to home....

In the twisting politics of Italy, no one can be trusted. And there are those who would be pleased to see the crusade fail....

Can Sir William and his knights survive this impossible mission into the heart of the enemy?

The first one was so good..,

But the second book is dull by comparison. I guess I enjoyed it well enough, but the story did not engage me like the first. Rather slow paced.
