About this title

Synopsis:

Set in Athens, 332 BC, the city is under the unhappy rule of Alexander the Great. In the midst of the un rest, Boutades, an eminent citizen is murdered. Suspicion fa lls upon young Philemon and his cousin Stephanos is elected to defend him. '

From the Inside Flap:

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.
