Blurb; Demanding Greek gods. A world of intrigue. A mysterious helper.
Zeus is used to getting what he wants…but that was before he met Barnabas Tew!
Barnabas and Wilfred, the unluckiest detectives ever, are enjoying their time in India, working on mastering their emotions and learning how to do all sorts of interesting yoga poses. They feel as if they’ve finally found some peace in their lives.
Everything changes, though, when Zeus whisks them away from their idyllic retreat and demands that they solve a case for him.
Having no choice, they reluctantly accept the job, but quickly come to realize that nothing is as it should be. Zeus’ motives are suspect from the beginning, the rest of the Greek gods and goddesses are untrustworthy at best, and Barnabas soon finds his temper hasn’t improved at all during his time in India.
Who is the mysterious lady who keeps popping up just when they need her? Is she friend, or is she foe?
Will Barnabas and Wilfred figure out what’s right and what’s wrong in this topsy-turvy world of lies, intrigue, and trickery? Or will the Greek gods and goddesses prove too much for them?
My Review; I came into this series very late so I had no background of the characters or what had happened before this, read well as a standalone but I think the previous books makes a huge difference and perspective. I would love to go back and read the previous books if I have time.
Barnabas Tew and the case of the Hellenic Abduction is book five in the series I believe. The two main characters Barnabas and Wilfred are both detectives and are the perfect, funny duo act. It’s a story full of adventure, the unexpected and a little bit of comedy I would say between the two detectives, they’re lovable. Can never be bored while reading this story. It set my imagination on fire. Brilliantly written.
Now I must admit this is something I wouldn’t have picked up for myself to read but I really did enjoy it. The story contains many gods and goddesses including Zeus, Aphrodite and Hades to name a few. A well deserved four stars from me and I would recommend!
