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. With "Aristotle and the Secrets of Life," tensions between the Athenians and the Makedonians--followers of another of Aristotle's former students, Alexander the Great?draw our heroes across the Aegean Sea. Even as Aristotle and Stephanos escape from pirates, uncover conspiracy, and face the horrors of war, they find time to debate the ideas that would become Aristotle's "Metaphysics" in this gripping travelogue. 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.
