Corby combines an ingenious whodunit with convincing 

period detail. This humorous and educational ancient historical series gets better and better with each entry.

There’s so much to admire here: Corby seamlessly works in Greek myths and history; the details of everyday life, like rituals, coins, and food, are part of the fabric of the mystery; and Nicolaos and Diotima’s witty, sexy relationship seems like a BCE version of Nick and Nora Charles. Another outstanding entry in a consistently excellent series.
