Description
In the summer of 1300, a war galley is found on the banks of the River Arno, its entire crew lying dead inside. Dante Alighieri, investigating as a prior of Florence in this follow-up to The Third Heaven Conspiracy, believes they were poisoned. But the only clue to the attack is a mysterious mechanical instrument, which Dante suspects is the work of al-Jazari, the legendary Persian inventor. Returning to Florence to work on his Divine Comedy, Dante discovers that the renegade monk Brinando is stirring up trouble and recruiting Florentines for a new crusade to liberate the Holy Land. Is this disturbing new development somehow linked to the deaths of the galley crew?

"For a series character distinctively different, it is hard to beat the Italian author Giulio Leoni's trick of casting Dante Alighieri, the medieval author of The Divine Comedy, as a sleuth."—Times (London)

"Dante vividly and fantastically comes to life in this amazing historical thriller. If you love The Name of the Rose, then you must read The Kingdom of Light."—Glenn Cooper
