For over half a century, the beautiful, ruined Temple of Apollo has been in the care of the old beekeeper Gabrilis. But when the value of the land soars, he is forced to sign away his interests – and hours later he meets a violent, lonely death.
When Hermes Diaktoros finds his friend’s battered body by a dusty roadside, the police quickly make him the prime suspect.

Hermes resolves to avenge his old friend and find the true culprit, but his methods are, as ever, unorthodox....

A thoroughly satisfying 2nd book in series

Having greatly enjoyed listening to The Messenger of Athens, this 2nd excellent story sees me set to continue with the 'greek detective' series. I very much like the concept of 'the fat man' and the way he dispenses (or helps along it's way) justice and opens up new and better lives for some of the decent characters he meets along the way. The narrator was a new name for me but I thought he did an excellent job sidestepping the accent diffculties the very excellent Sean Barrett had struggled with with the first book.
