about this book: "I love this book! I'll read this several more times over the next year or more. That's what I do when I find a great book by a wonderful storyteller!"

"Intriguing and entertaining. The characters' interactions are brilliant."

*No rest for the wicked*

Loreticus, the brilliant young spymaster of a swords-and-sandals empire, is hot-footing out of the capital whilst a scandal dies down. Unfortunately, when he arrives in his home town he finds that the protege of one of his mortal enemies has made himself comfortable in Loreticus's old house. Within a day, this cuckoo is murdered, struck forcibly by an arrow in a closed room.

Can Loreticus find the real assassin before he and his agent Selban swing on the gallows for the murder?

An eloquent, page-turning novella to introduce the readers to the young Loreticus as he learns his craft and weaves through the shadows of the brutal generals who rule the empire.

"Poirot meets The Musketeers. Genius."

Currently sitting at 4.7+ out of 5 stars on Amazon.
