Inspired by the classical world of Ancient Rome and authors such as
C J Sansom, Drakenfeld marks the start of a thrilling new fantasy
crime series. The monarchies of the Royal Vispasian Union have been
bound together for two hundred years by laws maintained and
enforced by the powerful Sun Chamber. As a result, nations have
flourished but corruption, deprivation and murder will always find
a way to thrive...Receiving news of his father's death Sun Chamber
Officer Lucan Drakenfeld is recalled home to the ancient city of
Tryum and rapidly embroiled in a mystifying case. The King's sister
has been found brutally murdered - her beaten and bloody body
discovered in a locked temple. With rumours of dark spirits and
political assassination, Drakenfeld has his work cut out for him
trying to separate superstition from certainty. His determination
to find the killer quickly makes him a target as the underworld
gangs of Tryum focus on this new threat to their power. Embarking
on the biggest and most complex investigation of his career,
Drakenfeld soon realises the evidence is leading him towards a
motive that could ultimately bring darkness to the whole continent.
The fate of the nations is in his hands.
