Lion at Sea
is a novel of a bronze-age mystery and a man's search for himself. Sanati, a pampered son of the richest trading house in ancient Crete, finds his world is shattered. His mother disappears. The sadistic King Madati, the Minos of Crete, has absolute power and wants Sanati's trading house. Sanati is forced to seek his mother, find ways to circumvent the king's power, face the greed of his malevolent wife, fight an ancient prophesy that foretells his destruction, endure a trading voyage—while crew and captain hate him—to Britain and Norway, and survive the greatest natural disaster of the ancient world.
Can Sanati deal with these huge currents that threaten to overwhelm him?
