       Additional Information  
      Tros, the man they called the Purple Pirate, accepts battle on the high seas.

    Tros of Samothrace is the Purple Pirate

    The epic saga of the ancient world-Tros of Samothrace-draws to a conclusion in this sixth-and final-volume. Julius Caesar has been assassinated and Queen Cleopatra of Egypt finds herself in a perilous position and desperate for allies to secure her power. Mark Antony comes into her life and once again the plotting begins and once again Tros is drawn into danger. Great perils will have to be overcome before Tros can safely feel the deck of his purple sailed, serpent prowed ship beneath his feet and a fair wind at his back. This is another satisfying helping from Talbot Mundy-one of the finest writers of this genre and much admired by some of it's most famous exponents including Robert E Howard of Conan fame. All six Tros adventures are now available from Leonaur in complementing covers in hard and soft cover.
