Gentlemen of the Road: A Tale of Adventure by Michael Chabon

Gentlemen of the Road revolves two swashbuckling heroes in the region of the Caucasus Mountains in the tenth century. Zelikman, a thin, itinerant physician who dresses in black, and Amram, a large Abyssinian ex-soldier, ply their trade as con men, thieves, and swords for hire living the life of adventure, with both its benefits and its perils. They fall in with Filaq, an adolescent prince of the kingdom of Khazaria, home to the red-haired Jews, and together they plot to retrieve the throne from his wicked uncle. Michael Chabon's novel has received mostly positive reviews with the London Times saying, "With its allusive glances here at Milorad Pavic's Dictionary of the Khazars, there at Don Quixote, its soaring storytelling and subtle resonances with contemporary history, readers might feel that they have reached the book equivalent of the Promised Land."
