ROBIN HOOD: THE TRUTH BEHIND THE GREEN TIGHTS

BOOK BY: DAVID NEILSON 

SYNOPSIS: "Feared by the bad, loved by the good" goes the song about Robin Hood, but in the case of Albert Ross, the distinction is not quite so clear-cut. For Albert is a coward, transferring his allegiance from Merry Men to Sheriff and back again at the drop of a hat - or rather, at the point of a sword. All of which lands Albert, his wife, Robin and Maid Marian in some very awkward situations ...
