In 1347 the English capture Calais and the war with France is suspended by a truce. But for Thomas of Hookton there is no end to the fighting. He is pursuing the grail, the most sacred of Christendom's relics, and is sent to his homeland to engineer a confrontation with his deadliest enemy.

What the papers say:
Praise for Bernard Cornwell and the Grail Quest series: 'It is all spectacular, rattling good stuff: war and torture; love, lust and loss.' The Times 'Amidst a wonderful cast of kings, monks, cardinals and mercenaries - Thomas finally confronts a magnificent villain...Crackling with good deeds, fine characters and sparkling set pieces, it confirms yet again Cornwell's reputation for masterly historical novels.' Daily Mail 'What a very fine writer Mr Cornwell has become.' Economist
