Third and final volume in the MacGregor trilogy, which charts the 18th-century fortunes of Rob Roy and the MacGregor clan, loyal supporters of the Stuart cause.
In 1745 the Highlanders limped away from the bitter field of Culloden. Soon the Duke of Cumberland was offering a huge sum for the capture of Prince Charles Edward Stuart, dead or alive.
Duncan MacGregor, great-nephew of Rob Roy, volunteers to join the small band of men escorting the Prince to safety.
Just one day after the Prince's escape, a large amount of French gold is landed at the very spot from which he has sailed. Thus it is that Duncan becomes involved in a desperate attempt to save Prince Charlie's gold, helped by beautiful, headstrong Caroline Cameron.
