Athens 332 BC a city uneasy under the sway of the Macedonian Alexander the Great now fighting he King of Persia for control of the East In this time of fresh ambition and furtive discontent an eminent citizen is brutally murderedYoung Philemon an exile formerly guilty of mansl. I ve stumbled upon this book by chance as when making an online purchase I was offered the second volume of this series As I do not like to read series starting by the middle namely in this genre as though not always the older cases are needed to understand the background of characters there are some mentions from time to time that help to understand of the stories It happened to me once while reading Steven Saylor s A Murder on the Apian Way and since then I always try to read a series in its straight order However although I uite liked the said book I feared this historical mystery wouldn t match my expectations as another previous book Nick Drake s Nefertiti was a disappointment In this book we follow Stephanos who tries to defend his cousin Philemon from the murder of an important figure in the city of Athens Their defence is focused around the fact that Philemon wasn t in town because he had been voted into exile for manslaughter incurring in the death penalty if he ever came back But Stephanos finds a very thick plot thus reuiring the help of his former master Aristotle I liked the main characters Stephanos and Aristotle and found their dialogues very entertaining and philosophical It reminded me some of the interaction between Poirot and Captain Hastings or even Sherlock and Watson I could not stop laughing at some lines likeIf Philemon did not do it someone of the class non Philemon did it Goodbye Stephanos and by the way say nothing of that last purchase of mine or I ll do you a mischief Think of the lewd jokes it would cause But if ever I seem overbearing and foolishly proud of my intellect you may always murmur to me That leather bag contained stones I also thought it curious the interest of Aristotle in pottery and some of his conversations around that topic seemed too similar to others I had while attending classes He seemed just like one of my teachers but when Aristotle discoursed on Greek pottery my teacher would have talked about Roman terra sigillata D The story despite having a somewhat predictable end the killer seemed obvious to me had sufficient twists to make one stuck to the book The only drawback I can point out is the lack of notes to clarify some of the terms used as the months or prodikasia However the context makes it easy to understand what they mean so it isn t such a fault as that Certainly a book I advise one to read especially those who like mysteries set in Classical Antiuity

Aristotle Detective

Turns DetectiveWhy did no one think of this before THE TIMESWit in a first novel is rare enough and when allied to the skilful unravelling of a murder story set in Ancient Athens it makes us doubly grateful for Aristotle Detective DAILY TELEGRAPHEminently enjoyable COLIN DEXTE. Having missed the vast majority of references and allusions suitable appreciation of this book is precluded by my ignorance of ancient Greece One could spend hours looking up terms and names if only those for different kinds of pots let alone what it would take to check the myriad of myths and legends It speaks for the book that this ignorance is not an impediment to enjoyment I should read it again with a classical encyclopedia at hand
