NOTTINGHAM opens with a clever ruse engaging King Richard the Lionhearted with his two guardsman. The action weaves between the King's conquests in Normandy as he moves toward the Crusade to capture Jerusalem and the movements of Marion and Lord
Walter Locksley (father of one of the guardsman) back at home in England.
Overriding both the battles and the charity at Locksley Castle are the machinations of the Sheriff of Nottingham. Modern slang updates the many detailed conversations as
complicated intrigues develop. For readers who aren't careful and intent followers of
the conflicting plots, things may appear convoluted or confusing. For fans, this is an
intriguing reimagining of the Robin Hood and Maid Marion tale which is fun to witness.
