Description

First in a series of "thoughtful police procedurals set in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales" (The New York Times), revealing the wildly lucrative dark side of an internationally renowned Greek island playground for the world's rich and famous, those battling for control of its vices, and the innocents affected by it all.

Politically incorrect detective Andreas Kaldis, promoted out of Athens to serve as police chief for Mykonos, is certain his homicide days are over. Murders don't happen in tourist heaven. At least that's what he's thinking as he stares at the remains of a young woman, ritually bound and buried on a pile of human bones inside a remote mountain church.

Teamed with the nearly-retired local homicide chief, Andreas tries to find the killer before the media can destroy the island's fabled reputation with a barrage of world-wide attention on a mystery that's haunted Mykonos undetected for decades.

When another young woman disappears, political niceties no longer matter. With the investigation now a rescue operation, Andreas races against a killer intent on claiming a new victim...

"Siger...captures the rare beauty of the Greek islands in this series debut." —Library Journal"Siger's intimate knowledge of Mykonos adds color and interest to [an] effective debut novel." —Kirkus Reviews

Notes

Description
A young woman on holiday to Mykonos, the most famous of Greece's Aegean Cycladic islands, disappears. No one notices, until a body turns up on a pile of bones under the floor of a remote mountain church. Then the island's new police chief--the young, politically incorrect, former Athens homicide detective Andreas Kaldis--starts finding bodies, bones, and suspects almost everywhere he looks. Just when it seems things can't get any worse, another young woman disappears. With the investigation now a rescue operation, Andreas finds himself plunging into ancient myths and forgotten island places, racing against a killer intent on claiming a new victim who is herself determined to outstep him.
