This is actually a 3.5 star book, I'd say, going up or down depending on how much interest you have in life in Classical Greece. Since I'm very interested in the time period, I enjoyed "Sacred Games," which chronicles the adventures of one Nicolaos as he solves a murder mystery at the 80th Olympiad.

Gary Corby has created an engaging protagonist and surrounded him with interesting complementary characters (his wife Diotima and his brother Socrates (yes, that Socrates, but just a boy)), which makes the series (this is book three) a fun read. The plot has enough twists to keep the pages turning as well, so all in all, it's a worthy effort. And the more you're fascinated by the details of life in ancient Greece, the more worthy you'll find it.
