One of the biggest killers in history is back...and looking for victims. A 14th Century corpse is unearthed in the name of science, bringing with it a punishing legacy. Dormant underground for hundreds of years, the plague has grown stronger than ever. Once set free, it never sleeps and it takes no prisoners. Archaeologists released it. Neither doctors, the police nor the army can stop it. Only one man can fight the new Black Death. To win, he must escape the clutches of crazed vigilantes, hell bent on executing him in the name of humanity, and survive not one but two nightmare journeys to salvation. This Son of York gives an uncompromising portrayal of modern-day York's trial by pestilence. The accuracy of detail within is just as uncompromising and as unrelenting as the story being told. Will York ever return to normality? The answer lies in This Son Of York's gritty narrative.

England, 1455 King Henry VI is proving to be an unstable monarch, prone to bouts of mysterious illness and susceptible to manipulation from others. Richard of York, the most powerful magnate in the land, steps in to manage affairs whilst Henry is unwell. Many people prefer York's rule, which does not please the queen. The country begins to divide and plots start to hatch.York himself is directly descended from the royal family line, in fact, a little more directly than Henry but he puts this fact aside and strives only to serve the king. This, however, becomes increasingly difficult due to the acts of the queen, who, now feeling threatened by York, calls her men to get rid of him.The York family is strong and the two eldest sons, Edward and Edmund are approaching manhood. Edward, bold and eager, is keen to leave his childhood behind and enter the world of men, of politics, combat and love. Edmund, the younger brother is more introspective and struggles to project his public image. Both boys look to York as their mentor, a match for any king; and Richard is proud of them both.But with sons comes the question of inheritance. Who will succeed Henry's throne? His own son, the young Prince Edward, or the capable York and his heirs?This historical window into the past lifts figures from the history books and gives the personality and purpose behind their actions. The story bears witness to the extremes of the human condition, from loving tenderness in court to vengeful violence on the battlefield.
