This is the eighth historical mystery in the series featuring John the eunuch, Chamberlain to Justinian in sixth-century Byzantium. In this adventure, John investigates the murders of rioters who had earlier survived the hangman’s noose. The authors convincingly convey the terror of being in a city under attack by an enraged mob. Simon Prebble presents the drama in a rich, well-tempered voice, bringing credibility and sensitivity to the action. Each character is well articulated, and Prebble's spare delivery allows events to unfold naturally. Prebble depicts a worthy hero, both brave and wise. We want to meet him again.
