The Man From Outremer
The tale of Derwent, a Knight Templar, whose quiet life as a churchman after the Crusades is disrupted when his old nemesis sets up an invasion of Scotland. More
1291: Derwent, a Knights Templar sergeant in Crusader Palestine, escapes from Acre when the city is sacked, but is suspicious about the part played in the city's fall by a devious Englishman. Disillusioned, Derwent returns to Roslin in Scotland to become an unassuming churchman.
1302: A friend of Derwent's disappears in Paris. He sets off to find him and uncovers a strange connection to the events of Acre. As Derwent struggles to make sense of this - and the involvement of his Acre nemesis - events move towards war with England and, with a strange symmetry, inexorably back to Roslin.
