Product description


Murder in the Byzantine Empire in the 11th century. Demetrios Askiates, the revealer of mysteries, is approached by the court of the emperor Komnenos, and asked to investigate the death of a soldier killed by a crossbow arrow who was standing next to the emperor. It is vital to catch the assassin before he strikes again and finds a far more important victim. Demetrios' search takes him to the slums of Constantinople and he comes upon Thomas, a Frankish youth recently orphaned, and it was he that fired the bolt. Demetrios needs to find the person, known only as 'the monk', who set up the kill, and to do this he enters the world of Italian and Frankish merchants who deal with Byzantium. It is an intriguing story full of exciting things and should sell well.
