Book cover design for David Pilling
England in 1326 stands on the brink of civil war. Thanks to the incompetence of Edward II’s government, the north is virtually overrun by the Scots, while an invasion fleet is massing across the Channel, led by Edward’s estranged Queen, Isabella, the ‘She-Wolf of France.’
The first book in the Folville’s Law series follows the adventures of Sir John Swale, knight of Cumberland, as he investigates a murder that threatens to hurl Edward’s tottering kingdom into the abyss. Along the way he clashes with Eustace Folville and James Coterel, leaders of two of the most notorious and brutal outlaw gangs in England.
As the death toll mounts, it remains to be seen who will survive and who will perish in the brutal game of 14th century war and politics.
Folville’s Law (I) Invasion is a new edition of the first
part of The John Swale Chronicles.
