The third mystery in the magnificent Alexander the Great series, by master historian Paul Doherty.
It is 334 BC and Alexander the Great and his troops have crossed into Asia. Marching south he has conquered everything in his path, but he and his enemies know that the greatest prize of all is the city of Halicarnassus. Alexander's court is set up close to the city and his physician and old friend Telamon is there. As Alexander prepares for one of the most dramatic confrontations in the ancient world, a series of brutal killings begins, proving that the Persians have infiltrated the court. With his lord facing the fight of his life, Telamon must go through 'The Gates of Hell' to find the traitors.
