Tom Swan and the Head of St George Venice

by Christian Cameron

Action / Adventure / Spy / Espionage eBooks of the Month Historical Fiction

Tom Swan and the Head of St George Venice Synopsis

1450s France. A young Englishman, Tom Swan, is kneeling in the dirt, waiting to be killed by the French who've taken him captive. He's not a professional soldier. He's really a merchant and a scholar looking for remnants of Ancient Greece and Rome - temples, graves, pottery, fabulous animals, unicorn horns. But he also has a real talent for ending up in the midst of violence when he didn't mean to. Having used his wits to escape execution, he begins a series of adventures that take him to street duels in Italy, meetings with remarkable men - from Leonardo Da Vinci to Vlad Dracula - and from the intrigues of the War of the Roses to the fall of Constantinople.

There are three books in this mini series starting with Castillion, then Venice and finally Constantinople.
