Praise for Six for Gold 'The authors write precisely and gracefully, maintaining a perfect balance between historical atmosphere and old-fashioned mystery. The setting, sixth-century Byzantium, is still fresh, still full of wonders and weirdness.' -Booklist Why are sheep in the remote Egyptian village of Mehenopolis cutting their own throats? That's the mystery Emperor Justinian inexplicably sends John, his Lord Chamberlain, to Egypt to solve. Mehenopolis is a pilgrim destination, thanks to its ancient shrine to a snake deity. Among the characters John encounters are a pretentious local landowner battling a self-styled magician for control of the lucrative shrine, an exiled heretical cleric, an itinerant beekeeper, and a disgraced charioteer. Will John uncover what is really happening to these sheep? Are these slayings somehow linked to the murder charge of which John has frantically tried to clear himself? Husband and wife Mary Reed and Eric Mayer began writing together in 1992. One for Sorrow, their first full length novel about John, Lord Chamberlain to Emperor Justinian I, appeared in 1999. In 2003, Booklist named the series one of its four 'Best Little Known Series.' home.epix.net/~maywrite
