As he enters the arena filled with his loyal subjects, he is brutally stabbed by the cruel dagger of Pausanias, a young captain of his guard. Soon the palace corridors are awash in fear and chaos: Philips ex-wife, the witch Olympias and mother of his son Alexander, plots the violent death of his young successor- Alexander, unconvinced that Pausanias is actually his fathers executioner, scours the city for a killer amidst rumors of his own illegitimacy- and everyone, including Alexander himself, falls under the dark cloud of suspicion.As Alexander struggles to fill his fathers role as ruler of Greece, he calls on the help of his young Hebrew friends Miriam and Simeon to uncover not just Philips assassin, but the mystery of his own origins. From the dark chambers of Olympias lair to the sun-baked streets of ancient Greece, Anna Apostolou unfolds a magnificent tale of antiquity and intrigue in rich historical detail.
