Killing Pythagoras | Lord of Minds

Crimes, mystery, a bleeding battle for succession for a powerful dynasty, and romance in a thrilling action story.

In Killing Pythagoras, Old philosopher Pythagoras, one of the most powerful people of his time, is about to choose his successor from among the great masters of the community, his closest disciples. The eventual successor will inherit such a huge influence and power, only to be compared to that of the Persian king Darius. This ability can be utilised to bring harmony, peace, and economic prosperity to a big part of the civilised world, but it can also be exploited in a tyrannical way. When Pythagoras is just about to open his mouth to name his heir, the chosen one falls dead right in front of the group. Moreover, in the following days, the other possible candidates begin to fall murdered in impossible circumstances. Behind these crimes there seems to be a mind so dark and powerful, able to surpass the intelligence of Pythagoras himself. The murderer kills the most powerful masters in front of the group, without leaving a single trace.
