Product description

Review

A stunning blockbuster - Independent - Robert Fisk

A compelling detective story of the highest order, In the Shadow of the Sword is also a dazzlingly colourful journey into the world of late antiquity. Every bit as thrilling a narrative history as Holland's previous works, [it] is also a profoundly important book - Sunday Times - Christopher Hart

Written with flamboyant elegance and energetic intensity, Holland delivers a brilliant tour de force of revisionist scholarship and thrilling storytelling with a bloodspattered cast of swashbuckling tyrants, nymphomaniacal empresses and visionary prophets . . . Unputdownable - The Times - Simon Sebag Montefiore

Book Description

From the bestselling author of Rubicon and Persian Fire comes this thrilling panoramic account of the rise of Islam
