From the back cover: When a violent murder leaves a prominent citizen dead and a falsely accused suspect in exile, a master philosopher turned part-time sleuth is drawn into the baffling mystery. The scene is Athens, 332 B.C.; the murder weapon is a bow and arrow; the investigator, an inexperienced young boy. There is only one mind capable of putting together the puzzling pieces--that of the great and wise Aristotle. Stephanos does the legwork, exploring the ins and outs of the city, and the master ponders the clues and weighs the evidence. In a splendidly dramatic trial before the supreme tribunal of Athens, Aristotle unmasks the villain in a dazzling display of deductive logic.

Historical mysteries are not my thing, but I am told this is a classic.
