The Ghost is the fastest, most cunning young criminal in Constantinople.
Skilled at lying and deceit, he has the power to twist the minds of
men, bending them to his will. He is both invisible and invincible. Or
at least he thinks so – till the day his father returns from the desert.
A ruthless barbarian assassin, Essa is not pleased to discover that his
wild son Cai has become the city’s most notorious thief. But sinister
forces are moving against Cai and he finds himself captive on a trading
ship. The Ghost no longer, he is now a slave. But luck has not deserted
him completely – the ship is bound for Britain, the home his barbarian
parents fled, long ago. When he becomes a slave to Wulfhere, prince of
Mercia, Cai soon discovers that his Anglish masters know more about his
family than he does – what secrets have his mother and father been
keeping from him? As Cai sharpens his skills of subterfuge and
persuasion, war threatens, and he must choose: will he use his
phenomenal talents for good, or evil?
