Halvar the Hireling, Captain of the Town Guard on the island of Manatas, must deal with the deaths of a messenger boy and a respected professor of mathematics, both of which may be linked to a shipment of arms smuggled into the city. To make matters worse, a cougar has been spotted in the hills north of the town. Sectarian disputes and personal rivalries make for a not-so-happy holiday for the ex-mercenary, who finds the number of his country's enemies growing exponentially.

About the Author

Roberta Rogow writes historical fiction, although she sometimes twists the history. Her most recent stories take place in a Manhattan Island that was settled by Spanish Moors instead of by Dutch traders: Last of the Mohegans meets Arabian Nights, with a Spanish accent. Roberta retired from a 37-year career as a children's librarian in 2008. She now lives in New Jersey, and spends her time going to science fiction and mystery conventions when she is not writing mysteries or singing filk (science fiction folk music).
