PRAISE FROM OUR READERS
"This is a fun modernization of mythic heroes, with cameos featuring such notables as: Aries, Hercules, and Aphrodite. Readers will love the twists and turns that Plato experiences as he makes his way through a veritable labyrinth of lies, deceptions, and MURDER."—WTF Are You Reading?
"A series of twists that explore several avenues and provide a long list of potential suspects, several showdowns that range from uncomfortable to deadly, never ending wisecracks from Plato and a few odd situations added to the mix—this is a story that was both fun AND entertaining to read."—I am, Indeed
TEASER FROM MURDER ON OLYMPUS
"The other week, someone snuck onto my property." He hesitated. I gestured for him to continue. After a moment he added, "They snuck onto my property and stole one of my best gorgons."
I blinked. "Excuse me?"
"My gorgon," Nicolas said. "She was stolen."
"You're a gorgon rancher?"
"Yes, sir." He nodded.
I crossed my arms to mask a shiver. Gorgons were some of the nastiest creatures around, but they were also big business. Their castoff skins were all the rage in the fashion industry. But raising the buggers was hazardous. They were strong and fast, almost impossible to tame, and had a natural aversion toward humans. Most gorgon farmers ended up getting killed by their own livestock.
"Is that a problem?" Nicolas asked.
"No," I lied. Gorgons gave me the creeps with all their hissing, and slithering, and turning people into stone. But the fact that Nicolas raised them for a living meant he had lots of money. Lots of money he'd send my way if I helped him.
