PART TWO OF THE TROY QUARTET Bringing ancient myth to life with passion, humour, and humanity, Lindsay Clarke vividly retells the story of Troy and of the heroes who fought there.

Enraged by the betrayal of Helen and Paris, Menelaus and his brother, the High King Agamemnon, gather their allies and set out to conquer the city of Troy.

Aboard their ships and behind the city's walls are figures whose names and deeds echo through history - the wily strategist Odysseus, the Trojan champion Hector, and the fiercely proud, impetuous warrior Achilles.
