Sipping cocktails by the pool all day was having the desired effect. But there was one thing Fairfax wanted to do for himself. After spending many hours reading books on the ancient region of Anatonia, he wanted to see Ephesus. His mother was determined to ruin his trip to the ruins. One old man, Demetrius, was resolved to ensure Fairfax saw the old Byzantium trading port in all its glory.
