When Gregory Hoffenbach unearths a valuable red stone while ploughing, he believes it could put an end to all his woes.
It doesn’t. In fact, it’s just the beginning.
Greg heads into the city of Calver with his brother Ralph to try and sell the stone but they soon discover there are plenty of people in the Kingdom who’d like to own Greg’s red stone.
Over the next few days, the brothers strike a deal with a prominent crime boss, stumble into a plot to overthrow the King and have a hand in the death of an over-ambitious hay salesman.
Fortunately for them, they’ve got help. Some very useful and very violent help.
It seems everyone wants Greg’s stone and they’ll stop at nothing to get it.
Greg? He just wants a new plough.
