Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Malthake’s Tail: A New York Lawyer in the Court of Pericles, Book 1, A Time-Travel Adventure
What if you woke up in 5th Century BC Greece?
If you were suddenly thrown 2500 years back in time, without warning, with just the clothes on your back, would you be a king or a slave? Would any of your modern knowledge be useful?
When Robert Kakos, a lawyer for a New York bank, in Athens as part of a team working on the Greek financial crisis, suddenly finds himself in the Athens of the 5th Century BCE, he must struggle to find value in his modern knowledge.
What good is it to be the only man on earth who knows that the Sun is a giant nuclear furnace, compressing hydrogen into helium under the pressure of its tremendous weight, or that penicillin can (somehow) be made from bread mold or any of the thousand other things that make up the body of modern knowledge if you can’t make anything or do anything or prove anything?
Join Robert as he fights to make a place for himself in the ancient world. Along the way he meets a host of colorful characters, slaves and merchants, Pericles and Socrates.
Can a modern man find the love and family that has always eluded him and change the course of history?
