In 645 BC, after waging a brutal military campaign against his own brother, King Ashurbanipal of Assyria commissions a monumental sculpture from the nation’s greatest stone carver: a frieze in alabaster of his favourite pastime, the hunting of captive lions. But when the life of the king is suddenly put in danger, and someone inspired by the epic of Gilgamesh begins murdering Ashurbanipal’s most loyal courtiers, it seems there’s more to the carving of the lion hunt than meets the eye.
