Der König stirbt. Das Reich soll leben. Zum Ende des neunten Jahrhunderts droht England erneut im Chaos zu versinken. Uhtreds Herr, König Alfred, ist ein todkranker Mann. Krieg liegt in der Luft. Alfred will, dass sein Sohn Edward ihm auf dem Thron folgt. Doch die Krone begehren viele, Sachsen und heidnische Wikingerfürsten. Ist es für den Krieger Uhtred nun an der Zeit, das ihm geraubte Land im Norden wiederzuerobern? Nein. Denn auch wenn ihn kein Eid an den schwachen Königssohn bindet: Uhtred wird nicht zusehen, wie Alfreds Traum von einem starken England in Blut und Brand versinkt. «Von allen lebenden und toten Autoren, die ich je gelesen habe, schreibt Bernard Cornwell die besten Schlachtszenen.» (George R.R. Martin)

From the critically acclaimed author Rennie Airth, comes the fifth John Madden mystery, The Death of Kings. I have reason to believe that the jade pendant accompanying this letter is the same one that disappeared from Miss Portia Blake's body in August 1938 . . . Since the piece could not have been stolen by the man who was hanged for Miss Blake's murder, the question arises: who else could have taken it? And why? 1949. An unsigned letter arrives on the desk of Chief Inspector Derry of the Canterbury police. Enclosed is a jade pendant, identical to the one that went missing from the body of Portia Blake, an actress murdered a decade previously. The case had been shut quickly at the time - the accused vagrant gave a written confession and was sentenced to the gallows - but in the police's haste to close the inquiry, the necklace was never recovered. Until now. Inspector Madden is asked to investigate the letter's worrying claims by his old friend, and former Chief Inspector, Angus Sinclair, who fears the wrong man may have been hanged on his watch. But with a world war separating Madden from the murder, the truth will not come easy . . .

For the Viking-raised but Saxon-born warrior, Uhtred, whose life seems to shadow the making of England, this presents him with difficult choices.King Alfred is dying and his passing threatens the island of Britain to renewed warfare. Alfred wants his son, Edward, to succeed him but there are other Saxon claimants to the throne as well as ambitious pagan Vikings to the north.Uhtred's loyalty - and his vows - were to Alfred, not to his son, and despite his long years of service to Alfred, he is still not committed to the Saxon cause. His own desire is to reclaim his long lost lands and castle to the north. But the challenge to him, as the king's warrior, is that he knows that he will either be the means of making Alfred's dream of a united and Christian England come to pass or be responsible for condemning it to oblivion.This novel is a dramatic story of the power of tribal commitment and the terrible difficulties of divided loyalties.
