In honor of the upcoming release of Gary Corby’s second book, The Ionia Sanction, I have not one, but TWO ARC’s to mail to two lucky winners!

I’ve read a few mysteries, but I love Gary’s books because they immerse me in Ancient Greece and they’re pretty darn hilarious too.

Case in point:

From the character list:

Thorion, Proxenos for Ephesus: He just hangs around.

I didn’t really get the full meaning (can you tell I don’t read many mysteries?) until I read the first sentences of the book:

I ran my finger along one foot of the corpse, then the other, making the body swing with a lazy, uncaring rhythm. I stared at his feet, my nose so close I went cross-eyed as the toes swung my way.

Thorion just hangs around because he was hanged. Ha!
