About this title


When the solid gold statue of a female baker gifted to the oracle at Delphi by King Croesus of Lydia and missing for over three centuries unexpectedly reappears on the Athenian black market, Corvinus’s stepfather Helvius Priscus recruits him as go-between in the purchase. Priscus, though, it turns out, isn’t the only interested party, and where bidding methods are concerned his rivals don’t play games... The fourth book in the Marcus Corvinus series.

About the Author:

David Wishart was born in Arbroath, Scotland. He studied Classics at Edinburgh University, and after a spell of teaching Latin and Greek in secondary school retrained as a teacher of English as a Foreign Language, working for various companies in Kuwait, Greece and Saudi Arabia. He returned to Scotland in 1990, and lives in Carnoustie, Angus. His first book, ‘I, Virgil’, was published in 1995; ‘Ovid’ – the first of the Marcus Corvinus series – followed a year later. He is married to Rona and has two children and (currently) four grandchildren.
