Publisher's Summary

A haunting historical novel of murder and betrayal in medieval England, Knight of Betrayal will plunge you into the vibrant and deadly world of medieval England, Henry II, Thomas Becket - and four murderous knights.

The repercussions of a horrific crime reverberate through the centuries as the 12th-century ghosts seek redemption and revenge, with no thought for anyone unlucky enough to get in their way.

Canterbury Cathedral, 1170.

Four knights break sanctuary to brutally murder Archbishop Thomas Becket for their king, Henry II.

Running from their crime, the four knights - Hugh de Morville, William de Tracy, Reginald FitzUrse, and Richard le Brett - flee north to Knaresborough Castle, where Morville is overlord. Initially celebrating ridding their king of the pest that Becket had become, they find themselves increasingly isolated as the church and public opinion turn against them.

Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, 2015.

August is feva time - a celebration and festival of the arts. The Castle Players are to perform a play of their own creation: Knight of Betrayal, based on the events leading up to Becket's murder.

Taking the honour seriously, they work hard to get into character - but after they experiment with a spirit board, are they channeling more than just the characters of the knights they are portraying?
