Another enjoyable light and frothy mystery set in ancient Periclean Greece. This time out, from a young ladies' academy at a temple complex one girl is killed--[by a bear??], another has disappeared; later on the fiancé of one of them is found dead in a Sacred Pool on the premises. An unsolved conspiracy of 30 years before involving Hippias, Tyrant of Athens and the Battle of Marathon is involved: who participated, how and why? Partners Nico and ex-priestess Diotima aided by Nico's pesky brother Socrates, set out to solve these mysteries and answer any questions. Delightful!! I like so much how Corby painlessly works in Greek history. Supplementary material at the end is most valuable, only don't read until you've read the novel first. Corby treats us to his gentle humor.
