Criminal Element is a fan site run by Macmillan. The lovely Laura at Criminal Element has just posted the first two chapters of The Ionia Sanction.
They'll also be posting two articles from me in the coming weeks. I wrote them as something like a Beginner's Guide to crime and punishment in the classical world, the audience being the 95% of Criminal Element readers who don't spend their every waking moment reading ancient history. Regular readers of this blog will probably find them straightforward!
So anyway, if you'd like to know how the book starts, click the link and have a read!
