 About the Book 

John, former Lord Chamberlain to Emperor Justinian, has been exiled to a rustic estate in Greece not far from where he grew up but he cannot escape mystery and mayhem. The residents of nearby Megara make it plain John and his family are not welcomeMoreJohn, former Lord Chamberlain to Emperor Justinian, has been exiled to a rustic estate in Greece not far from where he grew up but he cannot escape mystery and mayhem. The residents of nearby Megara make it plain John and his family are not welcome and he soon finds himself accused of blasphemy and murder. Now a powerless outsider, his investigations entangle him with a wealthy merchant who spends part of his time as a cave-dwelling hermit and the ruthless and antagonistic City Defender whose position makes him both law enforcer and judge, not to mention a corrupt estate overseer, a shady pig farmer, and the criminals and cut-throats populating a seedy port. Complicating matters further are two long lost childhood friends whose lives have taken very different paths and the stepfather John hated. John realizes that this time the solution to murder does not lie in the dark alleys where previous investigations have taken him but a far more dangerous place -- his own past. Can he find his way out of the labyrinth of lies and danger into which he has been thrust before disaster strikes and exile turns into execution?
