Publisher Comments:

Barry Unsworth's new novel stands the world on its head as a cast of Homeric characters find their high-sounding principles clashing with private motives...The Trojan War is about to break out, and Agamemnon will do anything to enable the Greek fleet to set sail with the wind behind him.
