The third Miriam bat Isaac mystery is here!
Listen to an excerpt
In The Deadliest Sport, Miriam has reason to be afraid.
“I dread attending Binyamin’s bout but not because I’m afraid he’ll lose. He told me he’ll have an untrained opponent, a noxi, you know, a criminal, not a trained professional. Maybe it’s the thought of another death on my brother’s hands, or that free from his contract, he’ll remain in Alexandria for good. I don’t know myself. All I know is the bout is not until Wednesday, but already I’m as nervous as if I were fighting in the arena myself.”
Miriam has reason to feel dread, but not because of the bout. She knows gladiatorial combat isn’t the only deadly sport in Roman-occupied Alexandria.
