About the Author
""The husband and wife team of Mary Reed and Eric Mayer co-author the award-winning John, Lord Chamberlain historical mysteries set in 6th century Byzantium. The American Library Association's Booklist Magazine named the Lord Chamberlain novels one of its Best Little Known Series and the books have received starred reviews from Booklist, Library Journal, and Publishers Weekly, most recently from the latter for Nine For the Devil, ninth in the series.""
"Reed and Mayer mix things up a bit with their 10th whodunit set in Constantinople during the reign of Emperor Justinian... [T]he chamberlain has been dismissed from his position, and decides to start a new life in Greece. That decision leaves his friend Felix, a captain of the palace guard, to solve a series of crimes. Bizarre circumstances surround the theft of a relic kept in the Church of the Holy Apostles: the thief left behind 30 frogs, sacred to an Egyptian god, and a scarab beetle on top of Theodora's sarcophagus. The case is complicated by witness reports of demons and Felix's discovery of a corpse, under potentially compromising circumstances."--Publishers Weekly
