I grabbed them (well, it seemed rude not to), and the first chapter of '24 hours in ancient Athens' reads quite well. Ostensibly it's about a temple guard at the Parthenon, but it's actually telling the story of the sculptor of the statue of Athena, of how a foreigner settled in Athens, serving in the Athenian army, guard rotations, sexual relations between ancient Greek men, Athenian politics, even mentions legal proceedings. Not bad for 10 pages.
Sounds good enough for 99p.

And don't forget Book 1: 24 Hours in Ancient Rome is also 99p

Thanks for this Dom, been looking to pick up a few more of the Arkady Renko novels since re-reading Gorky Park last year. I've read some of Young's Stasi novels as well. I'm more impressed by his creation of the period/setting than the actual storylines which are often purely sensationalist. Is Stasi State the one that takes place in an East German new town with Muller being posted there when she's pregnant?
