For the past fifteen years thousands of readers have thrilled to the adventures of the Stormy Petrel, of Count Jasper and his troop of Black Riders, of Far-Away Moses and of the young and lively Anastasia, Duchess of Ornawitza. Many have wondered what later events befell these splendid charactes and it is for this reason that Violet Needham has written RIchard and the Golden Horse Shoe. This story tells of equally thrilling adventures, of plot and counterplot within the Empire, of sudden and hasty journeys, of pursuits and of escapes. A rebel party is planning to supplant Anastasia by the young Count Tancred Feradio. In this they are opposed not only by the Stormy Petrel himself but by young Richard, son of the Count Jasper who was once the Stormy Petrel's sworn enemy. The story of the adventures Richard encounters while bringing a message, vital to the safety of the Empire, through the lines of the enemy, makes inspired reading.
