It is the Olympics of 460BC. Nico's best friend, Timodemus, is a competitor in the pakration, the deadly martial art of ancient Greece. Timo is a hot favourite to win; his only serious rival is Parmonos from Sparta. When Parmonos is found dead, it is obvious that Timodeus must be the killer - who else could have killed the second best fighter in all Hellas? The Judges of the Games sentence Timodemus to be executed as soon as the Sacred Games are finished. Now, Nico and his partner-in- sleuthing, the annoying clever priestess Diotima, have four days to save their friend.

I discovered and read this series in 2015. Love the mix of history, fiction and suspense.

Another excellent Greek Mystery by Gary Corby! Lots of twists and turns with just the right amount of humor and fast paced to keep you interested. I like the way he lists the main characters and has their names broken into syllables for proper pronunciation. And at the end he has a glossary for those of us not really up to date on our Greek History. He weaves into the plot bits and pieces of the daily life, politics, and history of Ancient Athens. A real fun read for enthused Ancient Greek buffs.
