After a little time-travel to ancient Greece, a graduate student ends up in the middle of several complex plots that span two centuries. This scholarly science fiction poses the question of what might have happened if Socrates hadn't actually swallowed the poisonous hemlock--but Socrates himself isn't cooperating in finding the answer to that question. Mark Shanahan gives a spirited narration. He has a light touch with the extensive dialogue and a deft facility in creating a range of characters of various ages and nationalities. Shanahan maintains a strong pace and draws out the suspense and drama of the plot. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
