Synopsis

 Elisha Grey, graduate student in many sciences and private consulting detective in Atlantis, solves three different mysteries with the help of his roommate, Kiara Ptolmai, the daughter of an Atlantean diplomat and a woman from the far off region of the Caucasus, who records the adventures. Cases include solving the disappearance of a multimorph  hybrid. (human/animal hybrid); the theft of a chemical formula for a badly needed pain relieving medicine; and the kidnapping of underage girls for recruitment into a household of odalisques (multiple brides). The technology of Atlantis and its contact with other continents is covered, as well as its ethics and mores.

***Derek #NerdGirlDad Review***
In many ways, apart from the setting in Atlantis, you could be  reading The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes.  Elisha Grey is as clever as Holmes, and the other main character, Kiara Ptolmai, is better than Watson in that she does make a contribution. For what it’s worth the world of Atlantis is well described, including the believable  human/bird, human/ horse etc Personally I think they detracted from rather than added to the enjoyment of the stories,
