Shadow of The Beast
(Jeffrey Peter Clarke)
Theseus, raised in secret to avoid assassination, arrives in Athens to find his true father, King Aegeus. Here he learns of the tribute paid each year in youths and girls to the despotic King Minos, ruler of Knossos on Crete. What has been their fate?
Theseus insists he goes with them to discover the truth.
What he witnesses at the king's palace is astonishing but beneath Knossos lies the grim labyrinth where lurks in darkness the horrific and bloody Minotaur with a craving for human flesh. Into this fetid pit of hell Minos will condemn as sacrifice the youngsters from Athens. Theseus has other ideas but how is he alone to defeat the beast of the labyrinth?
