Marilyn Todd - Swords, Sandals and Sirens

Murder, conmen, elephants. Who knew ancient times could be such fun? Many of the stories feature Claudia Seferius, the superbitch heroine of Marilyn Todd's critically acclaimed mystery series set in Ancient Rome. Others feature Iliona, High Priestess of the Temple of Eurotas, blackmailed to work with Sparta's feared secret police. From Sparta to Delphi, Egypt to Rome, this sparkling collection will have you laughing, guessing, biting your nails.

The hardcover edition is limited to 175 signed and numbered copies and includes a bonus separate story.
