615 AD.
A vengeful Persian tyrant prepares the final blow that will annihilate the Byzantine Empire.
Aelric of England – now the Lord Senator Alaric – is almost as powerful as the Emperor. Seemingly without opposition, he dominates the vast and morally bankrupt city of Constantinople. He alone is able to conceive and to push forward reforms that are the Empire’s only hope of survival, and perhaps of restoration to wealth and greatness.

Aelric faces his greatest challenge yet with danger of all frontiers. His domestic enemies are waiting for their moment to strike back and the world’s most terrifying military machine is assembling in secret beyond the mountains of the eastern frontiers.

Reviews

Vivid characters, devious plotting and buckets of gore are enhanced by his unfamiliar choice of period. Nasty, fun and educational.
<i>Daily Telegraph</i> on THE TERROR OF CONSTANTINOPLE
He knows how to deliver a fast-paced story and his grasp of the period is impressively detailed
<i>Mail on Sunday</i> on THE TERROR OF CONSTANTINOPLE
A rollicking and raunchy read . . . Anyone who enjoys their history with large dollops of action, sex, intrigue and, above all, fun will absolutely love this novel.
<i>Historical Novels Review</i> on THE TERROR OF CONSTANTINOPLE
'Fascinating to read, very well written, an intriguing plot and I enjoyed it very much.'
Derek Jacobi on CONSPIRACIES OF ROME
It would be hard to over-praise this extraordinary series, a near-perfect blend of historical detail and atmosphere with the plot of a conspiracy thriller, vivid characters, high philosophy and vulgar comedy.
Matt Coward, <i>The Morning Star</i> on THE SWORD OF DAMASCUS
It would be hard to over-praise this extraordinary series, a near-perfect blend of historical detail and atmosphere with the plot of a conspiracy thriller, vivid characters, high philosophy and vulgar comedy.
