Reiver: The Sword’s Edge by David Pilling

The second outing for Richie o’the Bow, this time on the run in Scotland, escaping the Armstrongs of Liddesdale for killing their chief Nebless Will. Captured by the English he is forced to work as a double-agent, carrying messages to and from the treacherous Earl of Westmoreland. Treads similar moss to the first book, breathing life into brutal time of blood-feuds and betrayal, political intrigue and rebellion. The whole thing has a filmic energy about it.
