|Plot Summary of The Mask of Apollo|
|"This the story of Nikeratos, an actor in ancient Greece who, in addition to relating tales of his professional life, also describes his friendships with some of the big names of the time, including Plato and Aristotle. Although the political aspect is interesting, the best part is the extremely accurate and well-researched depiction of an actor's life in that era. Renault had a real gift for making history come alive through the eyes of her characters, and Nikeratos is one of her best. "
