Dude, you had one job

The Bull from the Sea (hardcover) - Mary Renault

I seem to have been on a bit of a journey through Ancient Greece lately, and I picked this up at the library to read once I'm done with Orestes. 

 

The Bull From the Sea is the sequel to The King Must Die and picks up after Theseus defeats the Minotaur and returns to Athens. Except the silly sod 'forgets' to change the sails on his ship from black to white, meaning his father thinking him dead, promptly throws himself off a cliff. 

 

 

Yeah, he's an arse.
