461 B.C. - Athens: Murder...with a little humor. A change of pace. This new book, from a new author, starting a new series, sounds intriguing. Have you heard that pop song "It's Raining Men!"? Well, it's raining politicians... dead ones. Or, one anyway. Ephialtes has just introduced democracy to Athens... and all of Western Civilization. And suddenly, he's dead and falling out of the sky. Is someone trying to shoot down democracy already?
This novel gets a good review from Steven Saylor, whose Gordianus The Finder
series I really enjoy. (Saylor covers Ancient Rome-)
This murder may be worth investigating...
