Product description

Review

PRAISE FOR THE TAINT OF MIDAS: 'More transported Agatha Christie here, this time to a Greek island setting with modern land-grabbing by unscrupulous developers It's good news for readers that there are five more sins to go, because Diaktoros is a delight. Half Poirot, half deus ex machina a cracking plot, colourful local characters and descriptions of the hot, dry countryside so strong that you can almost see the heat haze and hear the cicadas - the perfect read to curl up with' Guardian PRAISE FOR THE MESSENGER OF ATHENS: 'This powerfully atmospheric mystery embraces Mediterranean passion, mythic meddling and patriarchal persecution. First-time novelist Anne Zouroudi proves a natural at the dark arts of writing Euro-crime' Independent 'This is a fantastic tale of passion, corruption and murder on a remote Greek island' Woman's Own 'Absorbing and beautifully written and reveals the savage, superstitious reality behind the pretty facade that is all that most of us know of any Greek island' Literary Review

Book Description

Hermes Diaktoros - part Poirot, part Precious Ramotswe, but with a mediterranean mystique (and rotundity) all of his own - returns in a story of envy and betrayal set on the beautiful Greek coastline.
