What is the price of power - and more importantly, is it one Tomas Piety is willing to pay? The new grimdark bestseller from 'An author at the top of his game' Grimdark Magazine
Gangster, soldier, priest. Queen's Man. Governor.
'If you haven't yet picked up this riveting and unique series, I highly recommend you do' Fantasy Book Critic
Tomas Piety has everything he ever wanted. In public he's a wealthy, highly respected businessman, happily married to a beautiful woman and governor of his home city of Ellinburg. In private, he's no longer a gang lord, head of the Pious Men, but one of the Queen's Men, invisible and officially non-existent, working in secret to protect his country.
The queen's sudden death sees him summoned him back to the capital - where he discovers his boss, Dieter Vogel, Provost Marshal of the Queen's Men, is busy tightening his stranglehold on the country.
Just as he once fought for his Pious Men, Tomas must now bend all his wit and hard-won wisdom to protect his queen - even when he can't always tell if he's on the right side.
Tomas has started to ask himself, what is the price of power? And more importantly, is it one he is willing to pay?

The first two books in this series were a great deal of fun so I had high hopes for book three. I'm glad to report that I was not at all disappointed. I'm beyond pleased to note that we are not quite done with the adventures of Tomas Piety and the rest of the Pious Men yet. Highly recommended - THE ELOQUENT PAGE on PRIEST OF GALLOWS

Clever storytelling and beautifully immersive prose. Priest of Lies digs deeper and hits harder, getting darker by the chapter, with astonishing surprises around each and every corner.

Peter McLean was born in London and went to school in the shadow of Norwich Cathedral, where he spent most of his time making up stories. He grew up alternating dingy nightclubs with studying martial arts and practical magic before settling to a career in corporate IT. The noir urban fantasy Burned Man series was followed by the highly acclaimed grimdark fantasy quartet, starting with Priest of Bones, Priest of Lies and Priest of Gallows. The final book about Tomas Piety will be Priest of Crowns.
