Overview

5th Century BC, Athens

Humble sculptor, Nikodimos, toils away in his workshop to create a sumptuous marble masterpiece of Athena Parthenos. His beautiful, noble creation is destined to be housed in the Parthenon. Nikodimos has no reason to suspect that it will not remain in its rightful home forever...

19th Century AD, Athens

Lord Quimby, rich, powerful and greedy, is enchanted by the wealth of the Parthenon. Unconcerned by the locals' distress, Lord Quimby plunders the Parthenon of her finest artefacts. His twelve-year-old nephew, Maximilian, helplessly watches his Uncle's savage devastation of the treasure as it is shipped off to England, never to be seen again on Greek soil.

Present Day

Young Cambridge student Max Perceval unearths the horror of his late ancestor's murky deeds and realises all is not what it seems in the Museum of Classical Antiquities. In order to locate the treasured marble, and right the wrongs of the past, Max must take matters into his own hands and confront the ghosts of the Quimby dynasty.

About the Author

Joanna D'Este Clark fell in love with the classical world and all-things-Greek while studying architecture and history of art at a Canadian university. For the last ten years she has been a strong supporter of the BCRPMG (British Committee for the Return of the Parthenon Marbles to Greece). She is a member of Marbles Re-United, and in 2016 was invited to speak about her exciting new work at the Acropolis Museum in Athens. Joanna lives in London although she dreams of spending a lot more time in Greece. Plunder with Intent is inspired by her passion to see the Parthenon Marbles finally come home.
