Anyone know where I can get hold of A Pride of Bastards?

Which is all about the Beauforts during the 15th centuryand their part in the Wars of the Roses.
As with The Popinjays, this is a book that I had asked for back in May and my wife had ordered as a birthday present from Amazon.
Just as with that book in never turned up and I have since been told that it is no longer in print.
Does anyone have a copy that they would be willing to loan or sell? (Or maybe even swop for something that I already have)?
Have a think on it anyhow.

Thanks Mark.
£12 is a shade pricey so I'm going to keep on looking.

Oxbow apparently has it for £7.99

The Deceivers (also by Geoffrey) is excellent, as is The Lordly Ones. Such a shame he is no longer with us - was such a lovely man.

Will give that a go. Never heard of them before (Oxbow that is).

Really? Oh, you're missing a trick there! Sign up for the mailshot, then every month or so, you'll get a very good paper catalogue through your letterbox, plus a lengthy newsletter. Both in themselves are good reads...but be warned, you may well find yourself in dog-with-four-lamppost territory!
