Kingdom of the Wicked: Book One: Rules

Author(s): Helen Dale

History

From the best-selling author of The Hand that Signed the Paper, winner of the Miles Franklin Award, comes a sensational epic novel. Published in association with Ligature (www.ligatu.re) 784 ab urbe condita-31 AD. Jerusalem sits uneasily in a Roman Empire that has seen an industrial revolution and now has cable news and fl ying machines - and rites and morals that are strange and repellent to the native people of Judaea. A charismatic young leader is arrested after a riot in the Temple. He seems to be a man of peace, but among his followers are Zealots and dagger-men sworn to drive the Romans from the Holy Land. As the city sinks into violence, the stage is set for a legal case that will shape millennia - the trial of Yeshua Ben Yusuf. Intricately imagined and ferociously executed, Kingdom of the Wicked is a stunning alternative history and a story for our time. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Helen Dale is a Queenslander by birth and a Londoner by choice. She read law at Oxford (where she was at Brasenose) and has previously worked as a lawyer, political staffer, and advertising copywriter (among other things). She became the youngest winner of Australia's Miles Franklin Award with her fi rst novel, The Hand that Signed the Paper, leaving the country shortly after it caused a storm of controversy.
