For Murder Is Murder, Whether It Arrives In The Form Of Steel Or The Fangs Of An Adder.&Rsquo; This Ambitious Novel Transports You To The Heart Of Greece In The Time Of Alexander The Great. Seleucus, Son Of Nicanor, Learns To Cope With Treachery At A Very Young Age. It Doesn&Rsquo;T Take Him Long To Master The Art Of Deceit Himself; His Journey From Renegade Citizen To Powerful Public Figure Is Testimony To His Skills. And From The Exhilarating Chariot Race In Olympia To Alexander&Rsquo;S Encounter With The Persian Army On The Banks Of The Granicus, His Story Rivets You From Beginning To End. Written With Admirable Verve, And With A Scholarship Lightly Worn, The Emissary Is A Truly Wonderful Patchwork Of Intrigue, Betrayal, Violence And Military Skullduggery In A Distant World, Epic In Proportion And Quite Unputdownable.
