It's quiet and peaceful.
But all of this is about to change because two neighbours have had an argument about a fence.
From one small, insignificant incident, the bad feeling and hostilities escalate as they try to get the better of each other.
The battle lines have been drawn,- if you want peace, prepare for war.
One caveat though, if you're of a nervous disposition or have a particular dislike of violence or Machiavellian scheming, put this book down right now!
You have been warned.
