The Marathon Conspiracy (The Athenian Mysteries, #4)
Jul 10, 2014
Another humorous volume in this light-hearted series that takes place in Periclean Athens. Corby is able to weave seamlessly Athenian history, customs, and politics in this mystery that focuses on the Temple of Artemis at Brauron, where well-born 13/14 year-olds go to experience the passage from childhood to puberty. The investigation of Nico and Diotima focuses on a skeleton found near the temple and a corpse of one of the young girls apparently mutilated by a bear. The interplay between Nico and Diotima, and their parents that are not entirely in favor of their child's betrothal, is believable and funny. I highly recommend the whole series!
