About the Edition

Cairo, 1167 A.D. Egypt is bleeding and the scent draws her enemies in like sharks. But the Caliph of Cairo has an unexpected ally: the Old Man of the Mountain. It is he who holds the ultimate power of life and death over the warring factions of the Moslem world, and it is he who sends his greatest weapon into Egypt, to serve the Caliph. He is but a single man but he is an Assassin: the one they call the Emir of the Knife.
