- Scroll down for the Chapter List -

SIX YEARS AGO : Late one night at the Sherwood Forest Visitor Centre, a group of computer programmers working on a project are shot and killed by one of their colleagues. The unbalanced and driven programmer sets about burning the entire facility to the ground.

NOW : The Sheriff of Nottingham, Jonathan Eustace, has been the public face of massive efforts by the City Council and the police to eradicate violent crime in Nottingham, fast making it one of the safest cities in the country. Unfortunately, there are still abstainers like Scott Williams who insist on burgling the odd house to supplement their dole money.

Scott eventually runs into a drunk, old homeless man called Albert Wetherby who claims to be Robin Hood. The old man won't leave Scott alone but his sobriety quickly returns when he learns that his daughter, Lyndsey Wood, has been murdered by burglars. Except Albert knows it wasn't burglars. It was the Sheriff. He knows this because he spent several months fighting his nemesis in a gang war across Nottinghamshire just a few years ago. It was a war he apparently lost - leading Eustace to political office and Albert to the bottom of a bottle.

Eustace, meanwhile, is hard at work. Although the post of Sheriff of Nottingham has no official power, he has used his influence to create a network of loyal followers within the Council, police and other wide-ranging agencies. He effectively runs Nottingham - and almost no-one realises it. He works toward ultimate law and order in the city and a day when everyone will be safe. And if he has to curb a few liberties or kill a few troublemakers to achieve his aims - then, so be it. Along with a small cabal of the city's most influential people, Jonathan Eustace works towards the fulfillment of all his goals with the impending launch of Project Safe and Sound.

Albert is trying to find out why Eustace had Lyndsey killed and tries to track down Lyndsey's assistant, Sara. He's an old man, though and asks for Scott's help. For reasons he can't figure out, the young layabout agrees. Utilising an old contact of Albert's - an information broker called Vincent - the pair track Sara down... just in time to watch the Sheriff's police chase her into the side of a petrol tanker. Nevertheless, they manage to retrieve a vital page of information that Sara had in her possession. The page of scribbled notes will take them one step closer to uncovering the full extent of the Sheriff's plans.

All the while, though, Scott is trying to get his head around the idea of Robin Hood and the Sheriff running around modern-day Nottingham - and he can't help wondering if Albert is being entirely truthful with him regarding where the hell these guys came from...
