Helen Dale - Kingdom of the Wicked - Monday 9th October

To be launched by Senator David Leyonhjelm

From the best-selling author of The Hand that Signed the Paper, winner of the Miles Franklin Award, comes an epic work of speculative fiction.

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 flying 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.

Intricately imagined and ferociously executed, Kingdom of the Wicked is a stunning alternative history and a story for our time.
