Atene, 17 novembre 1973. Un eminente archeologo muore misteriosamente subito dopo aver ritrovato il vaso d'oro dell'indovino Tiresia. Poche ore più tardi, mentre scoppiano i disordini di Piazza del Politecnico, una giovane e bella studentessa viene catturata, stuprata e uccisa dalla polizia sotto gli occhi del fidanzato, Claudio Setti.

“This book not only depicts dramatically, but at the same time demonstrates by what might be termed a mathematic method, the impossibility of any human creature’s being to others what he is to himself. “If you would like to have an idea of how it is that others see you, so as no longer to have to marvel at the judgments which others pass upon your personality, learn to reflect like the hero of this novel.” LUIGI PIRANDELLO.

Professor Periklis Harvatis, working alone and late into the night on an important archaelogical dig, has unearthed a magnificent golden vase upon which the enigmatic images of a long lost, second Odyssey are engraved, showing the mystery of Ulysses s last and final voyage. But in the bleak chamber where he finds it he sees something so frightening that a broken man less than 7 hours later he is dead, but not before he has ensured the safety of the vase. Ten years on, a series of violently gruesome deaths connected to the rape and murder, during the student protests in Athens, of a beautiful Greek woman on the same night as Prof Harvatis s discovery is perplexing the authorities. Each atrocity is accompanied by dire quotes from the ancient sources exposing an ingeniously cruel mind behind these events. Who is behind these murders? How are these two events connected?
