Praise for The Pericles Commission

“Classical Athens, a time of bustling rivalry, artistic genius and dramatic events, all superbly captured in this exciting saga of flesh and blood characters who jostle and fight, love and hate as they approach the climax of murderous intrigue.”
—P.C. Doherty

“Those who like their historicals with a touch of humor will welcome Australian author Corby’s promising debut . . . Corby displays a real gift for pacing and plotting.”
Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Details of culture, politics and history are so deftly woven into the threads of the story that life in ancient Athens comes vividly alive.”
—Historical Novel Review

“A highly enjoyable, fast-paced murder mystery which also provides an informative and interesting picture of the political intrigue and day-to-day life in ancient Athens.”
The Canberra Times (Australia)
