Review:

'The descriptions of life at the Greek Olympiads is vivid, a history lesson in itself, and I loved Corby's sense of humour - there are great one-liners...' - --Promoting Crime

About the Author:

Gary Corby has long been fascinated by ancient history, finding it more exciting and bizarre than any modern thriller. He's combined the ancient world with his love of whodunits, to create an historical mystery series set in classical Greece. Gary lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife and two daughters. He blogs at A Dead Man Fell from the Sky, on all things ancient, Athenian, and mysterious.
