Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Death on Delos

"Excellent. Once again, Corby combines an ingenious whodunit with convincing period detail. This humorous and educational ancient historical series gets better and better with each entry.​" 
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review 

"Refreshingly original...There’s so much to admire here: Corby seamlessly works in Greek myths and history; the details of everyday life, like rituals, coins, and food, are part of the fabric of the mystery; and Nicolaos and Diotima’s witty, sexy relationship seems like a BCE version of Nick and Nora Charles. Another outstanding entry in a consistently excellent series."
Booklist, Starred Review

"In his brisk seventh mystery set in the world of ancient Greece, Corby highlights the crackling chemistry between the two leads and provides another helpful, amusing list of characters that includes a description of and a quotation from each of them."
—Kirkus Reviews

"​The amalgamation of energetic action, amusing characters, and fascinating story lines based on accessible and absorbing historical facts will delight new and old fans alike. Readers who enjoy the ancient world detective series by Lindsey Davis or Steven Saylor may also appreciate this title.​" 
—Library Journal ​

​"All sorts of skullduggery take place . . . ​Gary Corby has the knack of combining history, humor, and untimely death in a way that's so entertaining readers may never realize that they're learning something. Death on Delos tells a fast-moving story involving the Nick and Nora Charles of ancient Athens.​"
—Kittling Books ​

“A fast-paced, enjoyable murder mystery that will make readers laugh and think in equal measure.”
The Sydney Morning Herald

—Kelli Stanley, award-winning author of City of Dragons
