Hetaera--Suspense in Ancient Athens

Hetaera--Suspense in Ancient Athens - Tess Gerritsen, Suzanne Tyrpak I have been a fan of Suzanne Tyrpak since reading her knockout debut album, The Vestal Virgin. I anxiously awaited this book hoping that the author could maintain the quality of writing that she started. The verdict - she absolutely did.

Suzanne has the ability to take historical elements and weave them into highly entertaining stories that are gripping.

This book tells me a bit of the author. This is only her second book but both share the same underlying premise. In each book, she has taken lesser know historical classes of women that are not what we would expect. The heroine's in her books are educated, intelligent, worldly, strong, etc. In short, they are today's modern women from a time long ago when women had no real standing in society.

I urge you to read Ms. Tyrpak's books. Everyone I have recommend her books to have really enjoyed her writing style.

This book is a bit short which I can understand since it is the first of a trilogy. The end of this book comes at a good point so I don't feel cheated - I am left wanting more. Enthusiastic recommend this author.
