…in which Delilah and Selim track down an ancient city buried beneath layers of mystery and secrets, all while fighting off a determined villain
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 . . . and forces her to team up with the most unlikely partner of all time: her sworn enemy, Jason Merrick, the man who framed her for espionage!
From vast forgotten underground cities to an elaborate and shocking double-cross, Delilah Dirk and the Pillars of Hercules brings all the drama and excitement that fans of the series crave.
"Cliff's art is striking in both action scenes and in the choice of color palette, used to convey place, tone, and mood." —Kirkus Reviews
"Compelling writing combined with colorful illustrations makes this a book that is sure to delight." —School Library Journal
Tony Cliff—a lifelong resident of Vancouver, British Columbia—began his comics work as a contributor to the Flight series of anthologies. His first major published work, Delilah Dirk and the Turkish Lieutenant, is a New York Times bestseller and a Publishers Weekly Best of 2013, and was nominated for Eisner, Shuster, and Harvey awards. Delilah Dirk and the Pillar of Hercules is the third book in the Delilah Dirk series, following 2016's similarly well-received The King's Shilling. He is strongly opposed to bios that conclude with one quirky attempt at humor.
