It had started in a small way with some official despatches which had fallen off a table, and slowly grew into a tangled maze of intrigue whose tendrils extended hundreds of miles away, as far as the shores of the Mediterranean.
Christopher Gaunt, no longer the undercover agent of a penniless and exiled monarch, but now serving the restored Charles II, finds himself sent to this world of Grand Masters and galleys, of scimitars and slaves, to try to discover what, or who, was responsible for the sinister web of conspiracy that was slowly unravelling, threatening war on an unprecedented scale if not stopped in time.
Gaunt is forced into a journey taking in the rocky island of Malta, home of the Knights of St John, Greece under the yoke of Turkish occupation, and eventually even getting as far as the very centre of the Islamic world in the place always known simply as the City, mighty Constantinople itself. On the way he finds danger, action and tragedy, as well as the unquestioning love and devotion of a young girl who unwittingly snares his heart.
