Isle of Shadows is a tale of murder and intrigue against the backdrop of the island of Rhodes in 227 BC. Tessa is a famous hetaera-or courtesan-and companion to high-ranking official Glaucus. Seeking freedom from her existence as a paid companion to men who believe they own her, Tessa is determined that the only way out is to commit suicide. When Glaucus is suddenly killed in an accident, Tessa can feel that freedom within her grasp. With the help of the Jewish servant Simeon and a mysterious new arrival named Nikos, she manages to keep Glaucus’ death a secret while speaking for him at The Assembly-Rhodes’ governing body-and working to uncover a sinister plot in the volatile world of Greek politics.
