Death Ex Machina



Corby's theatrical fifth mystery set in Classical Athens!

Athens, 459 BC: It's the time of the Great Dionysia, the largest arts festival of the ancient world, but a ghost haunts Athens's grand theater. Nicolaos and Diotima are hired to exorcise it, but when one of the actors is murdered, they strongly suspect that a very human saboteur is operating behind the scenes.

About the author

Gary Corby

Gary Corby has long been fascinated by ancient history, finding it more exciting and bizarre than any modern thriller. He's combined the ancient world with his love of whodunits, to create an historical mystery series set in Classical Greece. The first novel in this series, The Pericles Commission, was published by Penguin in 2011. Gary lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife and two daughters. He blogs at A Dead Man Fell From The Sky, on all things ancient, Athenian, and mysterious.
