Sword and Scimitar by Simon Scarrow

Bestselling author Simon Scarrow brings the Great Siege of Malta to vivid and unforgettable life in this gripping standalone novel.

1565, Malta: a vital outpost between the divided nations of Europe and the relentlessly expanding Ottoman Empire.  Faced with ferocious attack by a vast Turkish fleet, the knights of the Order of St John fear annihilation.  Amongst those called to assist is disgraced veteran Sir Thomas Barrett.  Loyalty and instinct compel him to put the Order above all other concerns, yet his allegiance is divided.  At Queen Elizabeth’s command, he must search for a hidden scroll, guarded by the knights, that threatens her reign.

As Sir Thomas confronts the past that cost him his honour and a secret that has long lain buried, a vast enemy army arrives to lay siege to the island…
