Nicolaos, Athens's only professional investigator, is hired to find out who is sabotaging the Theater of Dionysos during the Great Dionysia, the largest arts festival in the ancient world. Masks have been destroyed and people injured. The actors believe the ghost of the great actor Thespis is haunting the amphitheater, but as Nico and his wife, Diotima, high priestess of Athena, investigate, they suspect a more human culprit. Someone is trying to halt the production of Sisyphus, King of Corinth , a play written by Sophocles. And when an actor is killed, the stakes rise.

I enjoyed the mix of historical fact and fiction . Although the book is a bit chatty, the plot and subplot move well. It contains the requisite red-herrings, and I did not guess the villain well in advance of the sleuths' revelation. The post-revelation denouement was delicious..
