BLACK ROAD

A crime thriller set in the Viking era

Set in the dark days of the Viking Age as Christianity begins its inexorable sweep across Europe.  Magnus The Black acts as a “fixer” for the Church in the darker corners of Scandinavia.  His intentions are honorable, he sees the Christian mission and transformation of the pagan lands as inevitable, and so tries to make this change as painless as possible for his people.  Magnus, however, is as devout a pagan as he is a pragmatist, and is viewed as a traitor and an enemy by both sides.

This is a tapestry of a master story-teller… Layers upon layers of storytelling make this a fantastic read.
