The demon stirred. Its sleep had been long, but in its sleep it grew restless. It had smelled the blood of its past in its dreams. Now it wanted to taste it.
When Claudia is caught doping racehorses, an island in the Adriatic seems the perfect refuge. Shaded by figs and pomegranates, Leo’s villa is surrounded by plunging cliffs, sandy coves and hillsides scented by carpets of wild herbs.
Then a pirate ship anchors in the bay, and almost immediately a fire breaks out, an apprentice is murdered, and sinister messages are delivered on the point of a spear.
Too late, Claudia discovers that three hundred miles isn’t far enough from Rome to escape the law.
Or a bloodlust that goes way beyond evil.
Accused of doping race horses, series heroine Claudia Seferius retreats to the island haven of her patrician friend, Leo, in Marilyn Todd's (Dream Boat) eighth diverting Roman historical, Dark Horse. Instead of peace, however, Claudia finds a pirate warship anchored in the bay, arson and murder.
