Description

Having survived a close shave in England, where she was falsely accused of spying for the French, Delilah has set out with her companion Selim for more agreeable adventures in central Asia. But when she stumbles on an artifact that may be a clue about the location of the legendary third pillar of Hercules, Delilah and Selim are drawn back to Europe on an Indiana-Jones-style archeological caper that pits her against a ruthless enemy who is murderously intent on preventing Delilah from speaking out against him.

From vast forgotten underground cities to an elaborate and shocking double-cross, Tony Cliff's Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules brings all the drama and excitement that fans of the series crave.
