Cattle droving in the early 1800s is a hard and dangerous job full of risks and perils. Young Jack Rutherford, having learned the trade from his father and others, is well aware of these dangers when he sets out on his first solo drove. And just as well because he rapidly falls foul of Silas Kirk, a notorious villain who stops at nothing to get what he wants.
This fast moving novel quickly sets the scene and takes the reader on journeys from Southern Scotland to as far south as London.
On the way several attempts are made on his life by Kirk’s henchmen, without success. But will Jack survive an attack by the man himself?
