Comments & Further Information

A first UK edition B format (130 x 198 mm) paperback with a full 1 to 10 number sequence indicating a first printing.  Unread.  Age tanning to pages.

SYNOPSIS:  “Born of the gods, created to be their champions, their names echo in eternity: Theseus, Perseus, Hippolyta, Heracles, Helen of Troy and all their half-mortal ilk.  But the Age of Heroes is long past, and no more epics are told of their deeds.  Blessed – and cursed – with eternal life, they have walked the Earth for millennia, doing their best to fit in among ordinary humans, taking new names and living new lives.

And one by one, the demigods are meeting terrible, bloody ends.

And it’s up to Theseus, comfortably ensconced in New York and making his living as a crime fiction writer, to investigate the deaths.  His search for the culprit draws him back into the lives of his dysfunctional extended family, and into a world of tragedy and long-held grudges that he thought, and hoped, he’d put behind him.”
