In 1096, Hugh de Luc, a modest French innkeeper, leaves his beloved wife to join the Crusades in the Holy Land. When he returns two years later, he finds that his village has been ravaged by a brutal nobleman, his infant son murdered, and his wife taken into captivity. Neil Dickson reads the story of Hugh with passion and panache. He follows the unlikely hero through the Crusades, and then upon his return, as he takes the guise of a court jester to gain access to the nobleman's castle to find his wife, to avenge his son, and to ultimately lead a rebellion. The story is passionate, tragic, and filled with satisfying action and intrigue. The CD version comes with a bonus disc containing the entire novel in a special audiobook/e-book format that allows PC users to follow along with the text while listening to a synchronized reading.
