Robert Low recommends
Napoleon's Run (2020)
(William John Hazzard, book 1)
Jonathan Spencer
"A great read! Well-tempered and well-researched, with well-drawn characters who will, I am sure, be with us for a while."
Shadows of Athens (2019)
(Philocles, book 1)
JM Alvey
"Historical sleuthing finally gets its grown-up trousers. The book's got wit and knowledge and the winning knack of immersing the reader in ancient Greece and the whole theatrical scene there. It shows a thorough understanding of time and place, and has a dark heart of thuggery and murder. Finally, someone has taken on Saylor and Davis and brought us out of Rome at last!"
Clash of Empires (2018)
(Clash of Empires, book 1)
Ben Kane
"It's a broad canvas Kane is painting on, but he does it with vivid colours and, like the Romans themselves, he can show great admiration for a Greek enemy and still kick them in the balls."
