In Athens in 1928, archaeologist Laetitia Talbot begins a perilous race to unearth a plot steeped in betrayal, seething with retribution, and about to explode in a wave of lethal violence. In the open air theater of the dark god Dionysus, Letty watches a performance of an ancient Greek tragedy. But the revenge that is enacted on stage, the dagger that is wielded, and the blood that flows in full view of the audience are not theatrical effects. As Letty digs for clues, she unearths disturbing secrets and dark animosities with catastrophic implications worthy of Sophocles--but of a far more recent vintage. Now as the killer cuts a merciless swath across a country in the throes of political instability, Letty herself steps unawares into the murderer's savage spotlight--a light so bright she may not be able to see the dark figure behind it until it is too late
