Summary

Near-naked, flagrantly male, the Minotaur loomed out of the dark places of Greek mythology. Roaring, the bull-headed creature advanced. The razor-sharp Cretan axe swung murderously, slicing through the air, through flesh, through bone.

One by one, its enemies died.

Out of the past, too, came the plague - long-dormant seeds awakening to destroy. The victims would be legion, their deaths horrible.

Yet, behind the killing lay a plan, a purpose. A malign 20th-century intelligence was calling up this hideous visitation.

Greed, Corruption, Insest and Muder

If you want a book or audible with everything and hold your attention this one will. Yes, at first I could not make a bit of sense and the beginning was slow and extremely boring once the author and narrator got going you could not stop listening you wanted more so much more.
Basically you have three families who hate each other or willing to destroy the ones they love, supposed to love or the world population for money and power. This may sound like a story were you would get lost in what was happening between everyone you don't. The story is so well woven were each character of all three families effect each other in someway. One family is Greek, one French and the final one a Southern family the Greek and French are involved due to a bad marriage between the families and the Southern family due to the daughter being friends with both Greek and French family otherwise in the wrong place and friends. The Greek and French control the seeds that the world needs to grow crops like corn and wheat etc. For the Southern Family the daughter is out looking for a man who as a boy killed her brother and a few years later was blamed for her other brothers and as you listen you find is not true and and the father will not except the truth no matter what.
For the Minotaur is a Greek creature created by King Midas wife getting pregnant by having sex with a bull who was sent to King Midas to slaughter as a sacrifice. The child that was born was man with the body of a bull but a head of a bull horns and all the Minotaur became a weapon of hatred to be used to kill King Midas enemies.
The Minotaur in this story is used in the sameway in the story he is a man not a beast used to get revenge for the marriage that went wrong and then the daughter committed suicide also to revenge insest between a father and daughter were a son was born then was taken away from the daughter in a gruesome way that effected the daughter mind and led to a families trying to kill each other.
I personally found the story very good due to the way it was written and the narrator brought each and ever character alive to the point you could see them in your minds eye.
