Summary (From the publisher):

The greatest philosophical mastermind turns detective in this witty and dramatic whodunit which takes place in Athens, 332BC, an unhappy city under the rule of the Macedonian ‘barbarian’ Alexander the Great.

In the midst of this unrest, Boutades, an eminent citizen, is found brutally murdered. Suspicion falls heavily on young Philemon, and, by Athenian law, his cousin Stephanos is elected to defend his name in court.

In desperation, Stephanos seeks assistance from Aristotle, his former mentor — and Aristotle turns Detective.

The young, inexperienced boy and the great philosopher form a classically uneven partnership. Their efforts culminate in the gripping trial scene when Stephanos uses all the powers of rhetoric and oratory instilled in him by Aristotle to clear his family’s name of this bloody murder.
