    CHARACTERS ´ A Dead Man in Athens A Dead Man in AthensEnjoyable and very uick historicalmurdermystery read Once I accepted that this was written for a British not US reading audience the descriptionsdialogue was not a distraction Interesting plot very little character development at all I will likely look at reading the author's other works

    CHARACTERS ´ A Dead Man in Athens A Dead Man in Athensuick read; interesting enough to keep my attention Read it because it was set in Athens I would probably read the other books in this series if I happened across them but I’m not going to go out of my way to seek them out

    CHARACTERS ´ A Dead Man in Athens A Dead Man in AthensVery old fashioned as its style and not just because the story is set in 1912 Seymour is acting as a detective but like with all the Hercule Poirot and Perry Mason era detectives there isn't much actual investigation and close to zero forensics just mostly talking to and chasing some odd some interesting characters I guess the nicer term for the too old fashioned and sometimes boring because of that mysteries would be cozyThe case that sends Seymour to do his investigations in Athens is the cat of a Turkish sultan residing there The cat is murdered and this could cause an international crisis as the Turks Greeks and everyone else would not agree who killed the cat And perhaps next they are to kill the sultan the investigations while talking to the harem ladies about what happened the day the cat was poisoned is hilarious What an estrogen mafia later fortunate for the mystery also a man is murdered so it doesn't turn out to be only about who murdered the catThe idea of setti

    CHARACTERS ´ A Dead Man in Athens A Dead Man in AthensA decent read especially for waiting rooms which is where I read most of it Not a fast moving plot and most of the characters would not be called dynamic The mystery was decent and the people were decent and the setting pre WWI Athens was decent which was in keeping with what I expected So British I did enjoy the fact that this book was set in Athens and involved the deposed Sultan from Istanbul because I read in part as a prelude to my trip next month to Athens which will include a day in Istanbul Sad about the death of the cat which was the original case that Seymour was called in to investigate although apparently only the Sultan loved the poor thing The interwoven story line of the Bleriot machines airplanes was also interesting I will read of Seymour'

    CHARACTERS ´ A Dead Man in Athens A Dead Man in AthensThis version was the audio book by Chivers Audio Books read by Clive MantleI found Clive Mantle's voice very pleasant to listen to but I found my attention wandering from the plot The story follows Seymour as he tries to find out what has happened to the exiled Sultan's cat There is a murder and sabotage too I found the plot difficult to concentrate on I'm afraid The characters are not very likeable or particularly plausible and I felt little sympathy for their plightIf I had been reading a book I really think I would have abandoned reading it uite early on
