Dacre's War is a story of personal and political vengeance.
Ten years after the battle of Flodden, Adam Crozier, head of his clan and of an increasingly powerful alliance of Borderers, learns for sure that it was Lord Thomas Dacre - now the most powerful man in the north of England - who ordered his father's murder.
He determines to take his revenge. As a fighting man, Crozier would like nothing better than to bring Dacre down face to face but his wife Louise advises him that he must use more subtle methods.
So he sets out to engineer Dacre's downfall by turning the machinery of the English court against him.
A vivid and fast-moving tale of political intrigue and heartache, Dacre's War is a fascinating portrait of the historical Scottish and English borderlands, a place were there is never any chance of peace.
