Richie Cathar?s father, Alaric, was a renaissance man: an intellectual, explorer, archaeologist and historian. He was also a man of the sixties: a fantasist, absentee parent and drug abuser. Alaric named his son after his hero, Richard, Coeur de Lion, but left him little when he died apart from conflicting memories. Now Richie, thirty-something, is in search of his own role…

Following his father?s trail to the Holy Land to research the Art of the Medieval Latin Kingdom, Richie?s quest ? to uncover the fate of Christianity?s most sacred relic and the truth about his father ? takes him from the high-table intrigue of Oxford to the imposing Crusader castles of Jordan, and into a passionate love affair with Noor, a Canadian-Arab journalist, whose fate will become entwined with Richie?s own. Shot through with Justin Cartwright?s trademark sharp observation and heartbreaking drama, Lion Heart is a thrilling, romantic and original work from one of our finest novelists.
