More Description

Murder and mayhem may seem like unreasonable company for Aristotle, one of the founding minds of western philosophy. But in the skilled hands of Margaret Doody, the pairing could not be more logical. With her detective novels, Doody brings a Holmesian hero to the bloodied streets of ancient Greece, trading the pipe and deerstalker of Sherlock for the woolen chiton and sandals of Aristotle.
In "Aristotle Detective, "we first meet Stephanos--naive Watson to Aristotle's learned Holmes--a young Athenian and student of Aristotle who must clear his exiled cousin of murder and save his family's honor in a tense public trial.
Replete with suspense, historical detail, and humor, and complemented by an ever-growing list of characters and beautiful descriptions of the ancient world, Doody's mysteries are as much odes to the figures and forms of the classics as they are classic whodunits in their own right, sure to thrill students of history and philosophy alike.
