A Dead Man in Athens Read & Download ↠ 4 Athens 1913 is the capital of a country on the brink of war The new prime minister Venizelos is tired of the Ottoman overlords and has what he calls the Great Idea a vision of a new Greece which unites all the Greek people scattered around the Mediterranean But this is not such a great idea in view of other countries like Britai. A Dead Man in Athens by Michael Pearce is set in Greece during 1912 The country is on the brink of war and there is much unrest tension between the Greeks and the Ottoman Empire tension between the older Greeks who have seen enough of war and the young eager Greek men who want to prepare for war and want to use the new aircraft the French Bl riot machines to help in the impending hostilities and tensions surrounding the exiled former Sultan who is living in Salonica When the ex Sultan s beloved cat is poisoned he believes that it was just a trial run for an attempt on himself and creates uite a fuss The British Consulate as a neutral party in the area offers to bring in a detective to investigate the matter discreetly and send for Inspector Seymour of Scotland Yard The Yard man who is well known for his skill as a detective as well as his command of several languages has investigated several odd crimes in various far flung areas of the world But this is the first time he s been asked to investigate the death of a cat Then the ex Sultan begins having intense stomach cramps and it looks like he may have been right about the true target But what about the death of a British man who was involved with the new aircraft Does that connect somehow to the poisonings in the Sultan s household Seymour will have to find outOnce again Pearce does an excellent job evoking the time and place for his historical mystery His descriptions are brief but the reader has a definite understanding of the tensions building in this area of the world just prior to the First World War We are also given a nice peek at a harem both the general operations and the machinations at work amongst the inmates He tends to devote a great deal of time to dialogue and tangible clues aren t exactly thick on the ground but he does sprinkle enough hints throughout the conversation that one can and I did identify the culprit I did find the poisoning of the cat to be interesting Apparently it hasn t been entirely clarified the poison was in the milk But the cat smelled it and rejected the milk until it was fed candies with marzipan which somehow dulled the sense of smell to the extent that it later drank the milk Was this a two part plan Was the marzipan fed to the cat on purpose and if so was the poison really in the chocolates I found myself intrigued by the cat s death than the attempt on the ex Sultan and the death of the British manAnother solid entry in the historical series First posted on my blog My Reader s Block Please reuest permission before reposting

A Dead Man in Athens Read & Download ↠ 4 Ain has to sit up and take notice Something has to be done fast And the diplomats have to be urged to be low key The lowest key of all is to send out a police officer from Scotland Yard to investigate and as it happens the Foreign Office has a person in mind Seymour of the CID who has had some experience of this sort of thing befo. Very old fashioned as its style and not just because the story is set in 1912 Seymour is acting as a detective but like with all the Hercule Poirot and Perry Mason era detectives there isn t much actual investigation and close to zero forensics just mostly talking to and chasing some odd some interesting characters I guess the nicer term for the too old fashioned and sometimes boring because of that mysteries would be cozyThe case that sends Seymour to do his investigations in Athens is the cat of a Turkish sultan residing there The cat is murdered and this could cause an international crisis as the Turks Greeks and everyone else would not agree who killed the cat And perhaps next they are to kill the sultan the investigations while talking to the harem ladies about what happened the day the cat was poisoned is hilarious What an estrogen mafia later fortunate for the mystery also a man is murdered so it doesn t turn out to be only about who murdered the catThe idea of setting the story in another time and exotic location is brilliant but I m not sure I can imagine what Athens was in 1912 Nearly all women in the story were irritating the harem women seemed to be jus veiled estrogen issues and bitching with entitlement attitude and talking BS behind others backs then Aphrodite a Greek whose name has English spelling Odd Like Chloe I d have thought it would have a Greek spelling available has some grandiose feminist ideas she d be unhappy in 2012 too Oh and a cat who is murdered by feeding him poisoned chocolate with alcohol and marzipan filling when did you last see a cat who d eat chocolate or marzipan One of my cats was a fan of peanuts when he was small but I ve never seen a cat be fond of sweet stuffIt d still make a nice travel read for those who crave for an occasional cozy
