Alexander the Great: Murder in Babylon
Phillips, Graham      
ISBN: 0753510081
Virgin Books London, United Kingdom 2005  8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Soft Cover New book, 277 pages. Alexander the Great created the largest empire the world had ever known. On June 323 BC, in the anceint city of Babylon, at the very height of his power, he died suddenly of a mysterious illness at the age of 33. For centuries scholars have debated what really killed history's most successful soldier. Ancient sources record every detail of Alexander's strange and shocking demise - but the cause of death has never been established. Now with the help of the Los Angeles Police Department and scientists at the University of Southern California, Graham Phillips reveals compelling forensic evidence that Alexander the Great was actually poisoned by a member of his court. Recreating the scene of the crime to reveal eight suspects, each with the motive and opportunity to have assassinated the king, Graham Phillips uncovers a maze of intrigue, power play and romantic tragedy that led inevitably towards Alexander's death. Untimately, in a dramatic twist in the tale, the murderer finally unveiled.  As New
