Glyn Iliffe studied English and Classics at Reading University, where he developed a passion for the stories of ancient Greek mythology. Well travelled, Glyn has visited nearly forty countries, trekked in the Himalayas, spent six weeks hitchhiking across North America and had his collarbone broken by a bull in Pamplona.
He is married with two daughters and lives in Leicestershire. King of Ithaca was his first novel, followed by The Gates of Troy, The Armour of Achilles and, most recently, The Oracles of Troy. He is currently working on the fifth book in the series, The Voyage of Odysseus.
Achilles is dead and the hope of the Greeks has died with him. But when a series of oracles appears offering an end to the war against Troy, only one man has the courage and intelligence to fulfill them: Odysseus, king of Ithaca. With his friend Eperitus, he must follow the trail toward the greatest deception of all time. The Trojan Horse.
