When the body of a boy from one of Greece’s most prominent families turns up in a dumpster in one of Athens’ worst neighbourhoods, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis – now head of the Special Crimes Division – is certain there’s a message in the murders. But who sent it – and why?

Andreas’ search for answers takes him deep into the sordid, criminal side of Athens nightlife and on to the glittering society world, where age-old frictions between old and new money breed jealousy, murder, revenge, revolutionaries and dangerous, if not deadly, truths…

Reviews

Thoughtful police procedurals set in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales
The New York Times
Speedboat paced . . .audacious . . . suspenseful trip through the rarely seen darker strata of complex, contemporary Greece
Publishers Weekly
Another fast, page-turning, police procedural, from Jeffrey Siger . . . This well plotted story just speeds along and captures very vividly the Greek way of life when we can just imagine how difficult it must be to find the time to coolly think and identify the facts and other leads when it's so hot and humid that it is sometimes hard to breathe. Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis is a superb creation
Eurocrime
Mr. Siger is one of those rare writers whose finger is always on the pulse of modern day upheavals. He is never afraid to tackle and expose uncomfortable subjects - subjects most writers avoid...An authoritative and compelling voice, Mr. Siger is a master storyteller
New York Journal of Books
This is international police procedural writing at its best and should be recommended, in particular, to readers who enjoy Leighton Gage's Brazilian police stories (Buried Strangers, 2009) or Hakan Nesser's Swedish inspector Van Veeteren (Borkmann's Point, 2006)
Jessica Moyer, Booklist online
The author, a longtime resident of Mykonos, vividly captures this unfamiliar terrain's people and culture. Mystery fans who like their police procedurals in exotic locales will welcome this one
