Meanwhile, a ruthless enemy will stop at nothing to take from William what he considers to be his. Could the vicious and cunning Charles Wiltshire be his nemesis? Or does another man, in a quest for the Jewel of the North, hold the key to his destruction?As the First World War looms on the horizon, two men struggle to survive both the elements and each other on a quest to find that they hold dear but only one will have the courage to stand strong.
