A novel by

His mother is reviled as a whore, his half-brothers detest him and his employer wants to mess with him. It's his last night as a shepherd in the hill country near Beth Lechem, but he doesn't know it. He's about to be recruited as a spy and his mother will be stoned by an angry mob.

Thus begins the story of David and Goliath as it probably was before the religious scribes got their hands on it. A tale of betrayal, love and impossible odds, not least when young David is pitched into an arena to fight a terrifying bull-headed colossus. An experience that will stand him in good stead when the Philistine army marches into Judah to threaten a disorganised Hebrew rabble.

Comments from Harper Collins' site and the UK Arts Council funded

"A pacy story with a strong narrative flow and vivid characters"

"Wonderfully told, exciting and imaginative and a thundering good read"

"Deft period setting and dextrous weaving of significant moments"
