(From the author):
Daneion, known to friends as Wallis, travels Mediterranea, Gaul, the Aegean and Adriatic Seas, and the coastal Greek colonies of Persia and Italy, plying his trade as merchant and serving Olympias, mother of Alexander, as physician, diplomat, confidant and spy.
In his identity as Anaxinus the merchant, he organizes a powerful guild of artisans and merchants, bankers, shipping families, priests, and Egyptian royalty, all destined to support Alexander in his future campaigns.
Daneion becomes aware of, and works to prevent, a plot within Philip's close circle of friends to kidnap Alexander at birth and seize control of the throne of Macedon.
