After Alexander's death in 323 B.C., his only direct heirs were two unborn sons and a simpleton half-brother. Every long-simmering faction exploded into the vacuum of power. Wives, distant relatives, and generals all vied for the loyalty of the increasingly undisciplined Macedonian army. Most failed and were killed in the attempt. For no one possessed the leadership to keep the great empire from crumbling. But Alexander's legend endured to spread into worlds he had seen only in dreams.

While not as fun as Renault's other two Alexander novels, "Funeral Games" gives a convincing portrayal of the infighting and naked ambition of Alexander's generals after his death and the lengths to while they were willing to go to secure his empire for themselves.
