Product description

Review

PRAISE FOR THE DOCTOR OF THESSALY

"Zouroudi's latest mystery brings the Hellenic vibe tantalisingly close...The plot works well, but more diverting still is Zouroudi's atmospheric portrait of this austerely beautiful backwater."--Emma Hagestadt, The Independent (UK)

"[Diaktoros'] guided tour through the villagers' envy, lost loves, and hard-edged justice is as enlightening as it is entertaining. Zouroudi's straightforward style wisely allows room for the characters' relationships to provide the story's complexity. Recommended for those who would enjoy Alexander McCall Smith darkened a shade or two."--Booklist

"Sophisticated classic mystery fans will welcome Zouroudi's third Deadly Sins mystery. Apart from her empathic lead, Zoroudi's evocative prose is a plus ("When the wind blew, the cor- rugated iron roof-lashed down with rope and weighted with rocks-sang like the haunting dead, rattling its own percussion")."--Publishers Weekly

"A plus-sized Poirot with a more puckish personality...[Hermes'] droll interactions with hapless locals, along with Zouroudi's intricately detailed depictions of small-town dynamics, should hold readers' interest."--Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR THE TAINT OF MIDAS

"Appealing...In Anne Zouroudi's talented hands, Arcadia comes across as a once-lovely place with traces of the old, fresh, aromatic island still intact, but with ever larger swaths smashed by the machinery of industrial tourism."--Richard Lipez, The Washington Post

"A leisurely paced contemporary steeped in Greek mythology...With its wonderful premise for a mystery series, this entry captivates. Hermes is a fastidious philosopher, making this perfect book group material. Highly recommended, particularly for Alexander McCall Smith fans and perhaps the Nero Wolfe set as well."--Library Journal

"Lyrical...a lovely paean to the Greek islands."--Publishers Weekly

PRAISE FOR THE MESSENGER OF ATHENS

"Riveting...as surprising as a classic detective story, and as sad and inevitable as an ancient Greek drama."--Tom Nolan, The Wall Street Journal

"This elegant mystery has the hallmarks of a classic Greek tragedy."--Carole E. Barrowman, Minneapolis Star Tribune

About the Author

Anne Zouroudi was born in England and has lived in the Greek islands. Her attachment to Greece remains strong; the country is the inspiration for much of her writing. She now lives in northern England.
