Murder requires justice. But when one king murders another by treachery, who can get justice? I am Baron Godric MacEuan. As sheriff-at-large for Scotland, I rode the kingdom for King Malcolm Canmore, dealing with the worst of men to protect the innocent and enforce the king's law. Yet when good King Malcolm was treacherously slain, I could not save him, nor bring his killer to trial ... because his murderer was King William Rufus of England. Punish a king? You cannot. But you can take vengeance. So King Rufus thinks himself safe in England because he wears its crown. But no man is truly safe from another set upon vengeance. Even a king. Especially from a man with my skills.
