The Murder of Socrates

Publishing date:3/11/2016


Greece, 5th Century B.C.

A shadowy oracle predicts the death of Socrates. A newborn baby is condemned to death by his own father. Greece is ravaged by a war between Athens and Sparta. El asesinato de Sócrates is a masterful recreation of one of the most extraordinary periods in Western history. Mothers fighting for their children, doomed lovers and soldiers struggling for survival come together in a fascinating combination with the governors, artists and thinkers who made Greece the cradle of civilization.

The pages of this gripping novel gleam with the inimitable figure of Socrates, a man whose life and death have inspired us for centuries as the philosopher who marked a watershed in the history of humanity.
