About the Author

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.  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.

Author Name: 

The first book of what seems to be intended as a series, THE PERICLES COMMISSION starts out with potential.  I can't remember any other book of this style that I've read that combines series, with a real sense of humour.  It's making Ancient Athens seem like a real place.

From the Blurb:

Athens, 461BC.  A dead man falls from the sky, landing at the feet of a surprised Nicolaos.

It doesn't normally rain corpses.  This one is the politician Ephialtes, who only days before had turned Athens into a democracy.
