Dick Turpin was a famous highwayman (someone who robbed people on the road) in 1800's England. One night, a young boy is asked by a horseman to hold a black horse until he returns. Through the long night, the boy begins to suspect that this is no ordinary horse. Could this be the famous Black Bess, Dick Turpin's mount? And after soldiers discover the boy and horse, what will happen if Dick Turpin returns? The book has a surprise at the end- read it to find out who's robbing who.
