A fun read pure escapism and completely OTT Nonstop action and fast paced Set in 510 BC for four months or so Pythagoras is running his School of Mathematics and Philosophy He his family and disciples live in a special compound near the town of Croton on the Italian Peninsula To solve the murder of one of his closest disciples the so called grand masters he calls in the Egyptian Akenon who has come highly recommended Akenon and Ariadne the younger daughter of Pythagoras team up and investigate he for his general investigative ability and she for any explanations of the Pythagorean doctrine he might need Several grand masters are killed two by poison one by his own hand; and another accused of breaking the Oath of Secrecy is torn limb from limb by his Pythagorean brethren It is determined a certain masked man full face mask is the perpetrator and novel portrays how he is caught and the motives for his crimes drawing in some of the most totally evil figures at the highest levels of power I agree with Akenon when some of the mathematics is explained and its importance From the beginning I am lostVillains were pure evil Violence was grisly Akenon and Ariadne were appealing Don't read the book as something serious but think of it as I did an exaggeration or caricature of the mystery adventure genres Style seemed a bit clunky possibly because it was a translation in this case from the Spanish From what I know of ancient Greek clothing I think sometimes when a tunic is mentioned the author often means a himation a type of cloak since he mentions characters wrapping it around their left arms Apparently there will be a seuel When the mood strikes me for a escapist OTT romp I may read it I wanted this book to be so much than it was Although the main characters Akenon Ariadne and Pythagoras were likeable it was just a rough ugly book with all the brutally graphic rape torture and murder The villains were so monstrous so vile so over the top sadistic misogynistic and brutal that I actually felt nausea at times while reading I wouldn't have continued if I hadn't been reading for my book club Much of the book was extremely far fetched despite being based on true events from history The love story was completely predictable and the sex like summer beach novel fare I won't continue with the next volume I love history I love reading about people and places of long ago times So historical thrillers are completely up my alley It was with great restraint that I did not magically reach through my computer screen to grab this book when I first heard about it It has all the makings of a great novel The characters are interesting the plot thickens abundantly and the fact that it is based off real historical events is just the icing on the cake But let's begin this review properly shall we? What is this book about? Well for starters the great and powerful Pythagoras is in it You know who Pythagoras is or at least you should have heard his name in those math classes most of you probably fell asleep in during school He's the guy that has to do with trianglesthe Pythagorean Theorem Ah I see the light bulbs now above your heads Well let me say that this book is not about math so you can stop freaking outokay so it has a bit to do with math but it mostly has to do with MURDER That's right One of Pythagoras's most studious grand masters has been murdered In fact it is the one he was going to trust to take over for him when he can no longer enlighten others with his wisdom and knowledge How you ask? Mandrake root That sad part is the police cannot find the culprit There is not enough significant evidence to lead them anywhere But Pythagoras does not give up He sends someone to find a man who is known for his deductive prowess A man by the name of Akenon Akenon is not really keen to take on this case at first but Pythagoras can be uite convincing It also helps that Akenon has taken uite an interest in Pythagoras's daughter A woman as witty and wise as she is beautiful who believes her father might have been the true target of this murderer Who is this elusive killer and what are his true intentions? Can Akenon find out who did it before bodies fall? How does math fit into all this? Read the book and find out for yourself I absolutely positively was not disappointed At all Whatsoever This book has all the ualities of a crazy good historical novel and I can see why it was the number one bestseller on in Spanish for five consecutive months last year I LOVE IT I would probably not have enjoyed this book as much in English but for my Spanish language learning I enjoyed it a lot Some slow portions of the book but generally captured my interest Author is Spanish so you have Spanish from Spain in this book 37 stars A good thriller that involves this historical figureThere is not much information about Pythagoras and his life This books fills some of those gaps with an interesting fictional takeEntertaining and fast paced This was a good thriller I don’t understand the obsession of the author with sex scenes You don’t need to be so explicit It is disgusting Nice triller It made me think about mathematics as a danger actually to think was uite dangerous in those old days and now Before September 2018 I didn’t know any Marcos Chicot books and I have to say that I like this book because you want to keep reading but sometimes it becomes a little bit boring But in general it is a good book Promising
