The second part of a masterful retelling of the stories surrounding the Trojan War. RETURN FROM TROY begins after the sacking of Troy, covering Odysseus's trials and Agamemnon's fate.

The Heroes Return is the second volume in this masterful retelling of the myths surrounding the Trojan War. In two parts the final novel begins by covering the return of Agamemnon to Mycenae, his murder by his wife Clytaemnestra in revenge for sacrificing their daughter and the consequences of that killing. The second part focuses on the adventures of Odysseus on his long struggle to return home to Ithaca and his wife Penelope.

Both volumes end in an Afterword; relating the mythological themes and motifs of the stories to crucial aspects of contemporary experience.
