9781845591946: The House Of Death

Spring 334BC and the young Alexander is poised with his troops at the Hellespont, waiting to launch an invasion into the empire of the Persian King, Darius III. Knowing he must win the approval of the gods, Alexander makes sacrifice after sacrifice but the smoke does not rise - the sacrifices are tainted. Worse, the guides hired to lead him through Persian territory are being brutally murdered, Persian spies are active in the camp and Alexander's own generals harbour secret ambitions. Into this whirlpool of mistrust comes Telamon, a great friend from Alexander's boyhood. He sets about revealing the secret enemies within the camp while Alexander displays his true heroic stature, thowing off fears and panics and leading a bloody attack on the Persian King.

About the Author:

P.C. Doherty is the author of several acclaimed mystery series including "The Sorrowful Mysteries of Brother Athelstan," the Hugh Corbett medieval mysteries, and the Canterbury Tales of mystery and murder. He lives in England.

From AudioFile:

A mystery set against the violence of a rampaging army is odd. The ongoing slaughter seems to make the murders inconsequential, except that they change the course of Alexander's campaign. Terry Wale handles the mayhem with aplomb and steely discretion. The time is 334 BC, and the place is the Hellespont. Alexander is waiting for the gods' sign that his invasion of Persia will succeed. His trusted friend from school, Telamon the physician, arrives in camp and begins investigating the sealed tent murders of a vestal virgin, the map-maker, and many more. The characters of Alexander and Telamon are well rounded, adding particular dimension to the story. B.H.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
