[light dust-soiling and minor spotting to top edge of text block, a touch of wear at extremities; jacket a little browned at spine and along edges of rear flap, tiny bit of paper loss at corners of front panel]. Historical adventure novel set in 1,000 B.C., when "the city of Troy was the last remaining cultural center of the Hittite Empire, and the several states of Hellas, or Greece, were becoming restless." (Uh-oh, restless Greeks.) The author "has drawn a magnificent epic of the first Hellenic invasion of Troy, characterized by the great valor and bravery of the Trojan people, and heightened by one of the strongest love stories that Mr. Gerson has ever written." (And for a guy who, according to Wikipedia, wrote 325 books and used nine pseudonyms in addition to his own name, that's really saying something! And no, it's not about Helen and that other dude.)
