The first of a new epic story from the author of the ‘Tyrant’ series. Greeks and Persians are poised on the edge of conflict. Arimnestos has been betrayed by his cousin and found himself a slave and this is his journey out of bondage to seek his revenge. Great historical detail, atmospheric battle scenes and a cracking story make for the beginning of another fantastic series.
The Good Book Guide Review. Farm boy Arimnestos is proud of his heritage, particularly his father, but life is full of uncertainty. Soon he is plunged into a bloody conflict as East and West do battle. The cities of Asia Minor are in turmoil, and when revolution breaks out against the Persians Arim-nestos finds he is fighting for more than freedom from oppression. All seems lost when he is captured as a slave but novelist Christian Cameron has endowed his hero with a spirit of indomitability that carries his first-person story through to a gripping climax.

Killer of Men by Christian Cameron
Arimnestos is a farm boy when war breaks out between the citizens of his native Plataea and and their overbearing neighbours, Thebes. Standing in the battle line - the wall of bronze - for the first time, alongside his father and brother, he shares in a famous and unlikely victory. But after being knocked unconscious in the melee, he awakes not a hero, but a slave. Betrayed by his jealous and cowardly cousin, the freedom he fought for has now vanished, and he becomes the property of a rich citizen of Ephesus. So begins an epic journey from slavery that takes the young Arimnestos through a world poised on the brink of an epic confrontation, as the emerging civilization of the Greeks starts to flex its muscles against the established empire of the Persians. As he tries to make his fortune and revenge himself on the man who disinherited him, Arimnestos discovers that he has a talent that pays well in this new, violent world, for like his hero, Achilles, he is 'a killer of men'.
