Translated from the original Spanish by Sonia Soto. This is the first book for the American audience by this author. The story follows both the investigation of a series of deaths in ancient Athens and a modern-day translator who is trying to discover the hidden meaning of an ancient text. It has proved to be a fascinating read. Near fine in near fine dust jacket.
