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.
About the Author
Tony Cliff is the New York Times-bestselling author and illustrator of the Delilah Dirk graphic novel series and the picture book Let's Get Sleepy! He lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he is a fifteen-year veteran of the city’s animation industry. His first major published work, Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, was nominated for Eisner, Shuster, and Harvey awards. He is strongly opposed to bios that conclude with one quirky attempt at humor.
