323 B.C. The great Alexander is dead. Machon-the late emperor's renowned friend and ally-is being scapegoated for his downfall. An outsider on trial for his life, Machon will tell his Greek accusers the stunning, tragic truth behind the meteoric rise and fall of a peerless military leader who proclaimed himself a god-and lost his humanity.

Review:

"...fascinating...gripping...characters were carefully and convincingly created...Grim and gritty and vividly brought to life...a great achievement." -- Simon Scarrow, author of THE EAGLE AND THE WOLVES

"...gives the reader a true feel for the time...fast-paced and scholarly, a difficult combination...but Nicastro succeeds beautifully." -- James L. Nelson, author of THE ONLY LIFE THAT MATTERED

"[A] grand historical epic combined with court-room drama and political intrigue. Believable characters...clear, evocative language...a captivating, compelling page-turner." -- Pamela Goddard, Ithaca Times
