Another of Terry Deary's witty and wonderful tales of medieval knights.

The violent and cruel Sir Robert Hylton terrorises his servants in grand Hylton Castle. Whilst they suffer from cold, hunger and his temper, Sir Robert drinks wine and sits by the fire. When his violence goes one step too far, Sir Robert uses friends and influence to escape the law. But ghosts are known for following their own justice and Sir Robert will not find peace. This is an unusual tale, based on a real medieval knight, and full of Terry Deary's dark humour and dry wit.
