    1 thought on “Murder in Megara”

    1. John has been dismissed from his high office and is exiled to his estate in Greece, bringing along Cornelia and his servants. He has lost his power and influence, which will have a bearing on this case; his stepfather is murdered and John is accused of the murder. He sets out to prove his innocence, running up against people's intransigence and hatred of these "foreigners". He meets up with two boyhood friends, Alexis--now abbot of the monastery near John--and Leonidas, a clerk in the tax office [...]

    2. This is the first of the John the Chamberlain novels I have read and the eleventh in the series. I should start by saying that I did not feel at any disadvantage in not having read the others before. The characters were deftly introduced and the context was not difficult to follow. After ten novels as one of the most powerful men in the Byzantine Empire John finds himself exiled with his family to his childhood home near Megara in Greece. There he and his servants suffer much unpopularity from t [...]

    3. I read Murder in Megara by Mary Reed and Eric Mayer because I thought that it might be an interesting novel to recommend to a friend who is a fan of Steven Saylor; he had recommended Saylor's Wraths of Fury to me. This 2015 novel is the eleventh addition of Reed and Mayer's John the Eunuch series. It was an okay read that should satisfy the fans of Saylor. Like Wraths of Fury, however, Murder in Megara failed to grab my interest and make me want to know more about this particular time in history [...]

    4. Very enjoyable visit with John and Cornelia as he returns to his boyhood hometown, Megara and actually takes up residence near his parent's farm. Adjacent to the farm is a monastery where some of the action takes place and the farm itself has a ruined temple.These edifices will become important as will John's childhood friends.His servants Hypatia and Peter play a large part as do innumerable laborers on his estate.Since he is in actuality, exiled to this estate and since the citizens of the tow [...]

    5. I love the originality of this murder mystery series, in a genre that often feels rehashed. It is set during the Byzantine Era, when the Eastern Roman Empire was expanding after centuries of contracting. The Emperor Justinian used brute force to reclaim all the bits and pieces that had once made up the Roman Empire, and brought them together again.John, the protagonist of the series, of which this is book eleven, is a man who was enslaved, then made into a eunuch to work at the Byzantine court, [...]

    6. I read my first John, the Lord Chamberlain, mystery a year and a half ago and found it engrossing, not just because of the mystery at its heart, but because of the glimpse it gives into 6th Century life under the Emperor Justinian—particularly its depiction of the religious tensions at this time. Justinian has embraced Christianity, which is now the state religion, but many people still adhere to older faiths, including John, who worships the warrior God Mithra.At this novel’s opening, John [...]

    7. ++John has been exiled to Megara by Emperor Justinian I. Luckily while still in Constantinople Cornelia has made arrangements to purchase the estate which includes his old family farm. Expecting to relax, be relieved of the stress & intrigue of the capitol, they are instead shunned, reviled and rumored to be evil. They bring with them only his long time servants, Peter and Hypatia and are expecting his daughter & son-in-law to arrive before long. Then his step father Theopolis , whom he [...]

    8. John has been exiled from Constantinople, to Megara, the area of his birth. Accompanying him are Cornelia and their servants Peter and Hypatia. But, despite John's ties to the town, the locals are not welcoming. And when John discovers the body of his stepfather, he becomes the prime suspect. So he begins investigating Theophilus' activities, trying to discover any confederates who may have wanted to be rid of him. A quick enjoyable read, set in an unusual time and place.

    9. Characters are in exile from the e,peters court. They are not lived in the town on Megafa,moor I known reasons. The couple, John and Cornelia, have returned to his family farm and its. A mess then his stepfather,ma villain, is found murdered on the estate honestly, I couldn't finish it. It just wasn't that interesting.

    10. I received an arc from Poisoned Pen Press. So glad they are reprinting some of these undiscovered gems. I felt as though I was back in time of the days of Constantinople during the reign of Justinian. The pacing was nice with some twists and turn. Did not realize this was the 11th in the series. It does stand alone, but I did wonder how John became a eunuch!

    11. This mystery was a surprise to me and I love the twists and turns and the characters and was worth reading and I won this here!
