A somewhat different approach for Davis in that this novel was written almost as a play, but still with prose.

It describes a few months in the Near-East as our hero and heroine spent time with a group of traveling actors, death, mystery, unrequited love, Helena almost dying, Falco almost getting killed (again), and two or three different plots interweaving.

Throw in comics, a long lost child, a long-suffering mother, a priest who may be more than he seems, willing women, and three snakes.

Entertaining.
