As Funeral Games opens, Alexander the Great lies dying. Around his body gather the generals, the provincial satraps and the royal wives, already competing for the prizes of powe and land. Only Bagoas, the Persian boy mourning in the shadows wants nothing. Tracing the events of the fifteen years following Alexander's death, Funeral Games sees his mighty empire disintegrate, and brings Mary Renault's Alexander trilogy to a dramatic close.

"Brilliant and brutal... she has retained her unnerving genius for making the remote past live without diminishing its remoteness and alien glitter" ( Sunday Times)
The classic final part of the acclaimed Alexander the Great trilogy
