If that's the same person as Basil II, then I believe The High City by Cecelia Holland features him, though it's not the first in its series. Not read it myself.
I enjoyed The High City. I haven't read any of the other novels in that series and found it worked perfectly well as a standalone novel, though it does make me curious to read the others. I've posted a review at HistoricalNovels.info.
