The Trojan Icon

(2016)
(The eighth book in the Ethan Gage series)
A novel by

 
Ethan Gage is back in The Trojan Icon, the richest novel yet in the New York Times bestselling series of historical thrillers. Hurtling from the snowy palaces of Russia's St. Petersburg to the shadowy harem of Constantinople in 1806, the novel's characters conspire and compete for a Trojan relic that can give invincibility to empires.

The action begins when the American adventurer and his wife, Astiza, are recruited to steal two Polish swords from the world's most formidable treasury. Gage must break into a vault in the Peter and Paul fortress before Prussia ends Polish dreams of independence.

Yet that quest is only the beginning of challenge. Murder, ambush, royal treachery, and the mysterious appearance of a long-lost brother require a more daunting mission, requiring a sacrificial assault on a lair of pure evil.

From a Polish temple, to a Transylvanian castle, to the palace of the ruler of the Ottoman Empire, conspiracy and courage play out as Napoleon Bonaparte plots for domination. Populated by key players from history and based on real events, The Trojan Icon takes readers to a vivid world of passion, peril, and power in which the ancient past may change the fate of the world.

The Ethan Gage series of historical thrillers has sold into twenty-nine languages and drawn critical praise and eager fans worldwide. Praise for the series:
