They're behind bars, but that won't stop them committing crimes. And it won't keep them safe, either. Trumble is a minimum security federal prison, home to drug dealers, bank robbers, swindlers, embezzlers, tax evaders - and three former judges who call themselves The Brethren. The Brethren meet each day in the law library, where they spend hours writing letters. They're fine-tuning a mail scam, and it's starting to pay big. The money is pouring in. But when their little scam goes awry and ensnares the wrong victim, a powerful man on the outside, they realise they're in trouble. Because this man has dangerous friends, and just as the prison failed to protect society from the Brethren, it won't protect them from their victims...

Frankreich im 16. Jahrhundert - es tobt der Glaubenskrieg zwischen Katholiken und Hugenotten. Die Christen beider Parteien metzeln einander fröhlich nieder: es fällt ja so schwer, den Glauben des anderen zu ertragen. Noch in der kleinen Welt von Burg Mespech im Périgord spürt der junge Pierre de Siorac den Riss, der durch das Land geht. Sein Vater, der Barron, ist Anhänger der reformierten Religion und zwingt die Kinder wie auch das Gesinde, sich gleichfalls zu bekehren. Die Mutter bleibt Papistin, ein nie nachlassender Grund für Konflikte. Und trotzdem ist für Pierre die Burg der Ort, an dem er sich geborgen fühlt. Hier lernt er fechten, reiten, lieben und bildet die Talente aus, die er dereinst - in den folgenden Bänden der Romanserie - dem guten König Henri Quatre leihen wird. "Fortune de France" - Schicksal Frankreichs - ist ein unterhaltsamer und zudem genau recherchierter historischer Roman, "... und wenn ich mir die geschichtlichen Hintergrundinformationen allein zusammensuchte, dann nicht aus hugenottischer Sparsamkeit, sondern weil es mir großes Vergnügen bereitete und ich mit keine der vielen amüsanten, bunten, schrecklichen oder pikanten Einzelheiten entgehen lassen wollte, von denen die Memoiren jener Zeit übervoll sind." (Robert Merle)

Despite increased commercialization and an efficient network of local markets in 1300s Europeas well as significant costs and risks associated with the production, transportation, and storage of foodsome landed lords, monasteries, and convents continued to rely on the produce of their own estates. This detailed study sets out to account for the puzzling situation, covering the period between 1260 and 1536, with an in-depth analysis of the changing patterns and fortunes of the provisioning of Norwich Cathedral Priory. As it examines the entire process of food delivery from field to table, the record explores the question of food security within the context of the various crises in the 14th century, and also illustrates the aftereffects of the Black Death. Although providing unparalleled insight into the Priory, the book also serves as an important resource on understanding the Late Middle Ages economy of England and society during a time of upheaval."

Revered by fans as a master of the action-adventure genre, Henry Rider Haggard's books are rip-roaring yarns in the classic sense of the term. Although many of his novels are set in far-flung locales, The Brethren is set in early medieval-era England. The plot hinges on a romantic rivalry between two brothers, with plenty of battlefield action thrown in for good measure.
