Welcome to the Queen's Arms Inn, the lowest place on earth, as far as Beth Wymond is concerned. All she wants is to have her father back. Trouble is, she never knew what he was like before the war. Before he became the most volatile, hard drinking, hard fighting man she'd ever met. All Lambert Wymond wants is to forget the dark work he did for King Rolant, and to have a drink with his daughter. But a monster lives within him—maybe it was always there, maybe not. Either way, once it’s loose, not even Beth can lock it away again.

The common room is crowded, and there’s an empty seat at the bar next to Lambert. But I wouldn’t bother sitting down—things are about to get nasty. In other words, it’s just another night at the Queen’s Arms Inn.

Just Another Night at the Queen’s Arms Inn that brilliant mixture of comedy, tragedy, action, and introspection typical of all of Doug Turner’s books and short stories. It’s about how we’re all trapped in some way or another, and the ways we cope with that dungeon cell.
