A Dead Man in Athens

A Dead Man in Athens Summary õ 8 Athens 1913 is the capital of a country on the brink of war The new prime minister Venizelos is tired of the Ottoman overlords and has what he calls the Great Idea a vision of a new Greece which unites all the Greek people scattered around the Mediterranean But this is not such a great idea in view of other countries like Britai. I picked up an old copy of this in Caffe Nero and started to read It s a short deft crime story set a few years before the First World War Seymour a linguistically competent member of the English Special Branch is sent to Athens to investigate the suspected poisoning of the exiled Turkish Sultan s cat it is feared this death was a dry run for an attempt on the life of the ex Sultan himselfThe narrative is wry and uietly amusing as well as entertainingly informative of Balkan politics in the years immediately preceding the First World War I enjoyed it so much that I am now actively seeking out the others in the series to read

The British Foreign Office CID agent Seymour continues his clockwise tour of the Mediterranean with his latest stop in Athens as the Greeks inches toward the first Balkan War The immediate victim may be both a rouse and and a farce the recently exiled Ottoman Sultan s cat So exactly who is the Dead Man Eventually Seymour will get to that as he meanders in his typical Columbo esue fashion chatting up all the main players in Athen s complex social and political circles The appeal that somehow manages to keep me coming back to these lightweight mystery novels is two simple ploys the play like dialogue that offers no shortage of humours banter and the subtle history lessons learned about this sliver of time before Europe exploded With special attention to the local social cultural scene Michael Pearce s novels invariably open the door for a little extra research Now I know what a Bleriot machine is I gave this Athenian episode a slightly lower score than usual as the story took longer to get going and the array of characters started to look all the same as Seymour s investigation progressed However since I seem to have signed up for the full tour I am curious to explore what else Seymour discovers about the locals both dead and alive in Naples Istanbul and Malta
