The most recent Robin Hood-related news stories breaking in the global media!


Review of the Novella “A Lonely Road” by Peter Morrison

Having read hundreds of Robin Hood related books and articles over the years, I am always interested in how a new author incorporates a link to the traditional tales and what approach they adopt, so when Peter Morrison's "A Lonely Road" landed on my desk it was a real breath of fresh air.


The storyline addresses the subject from a distinct new angle and focuses on aspects of the familiar legend as a criminal investigation and cleverly ratchets up the drama in a plot that crackles with intrigue and interesting characters and unfolds against a background of events in Northern England in 1214. Thomas Sturdy, a young advocate, comes upon a grave at the edge of the forest and the discovery sets off a chain of events and revelations as interesting as any modern day detective novel.

Author, Peter Morrison says, "I wanted to write a short but intricate story which held the reader's interest all the way while evoking a sense of the distant past." Well, this excellent work of fiction with a difference has certainly delivered his intentions and also helped to re-establish the novella as a succinct and valid literary format.

This book is available from at just £3.99, this is definitely a Robin Hood book with a new perspective and highly recommended to all lovers of quality crime fiction.
