The first book in a new commercial crime series staring the sexy homicide detective Andreas Kaldis, with each book set in a different Greek city.
Jeffrey Siger, born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, practiced law at a major Wall Street law firm. He left Wall Street to establish his own New York City law firm and continued as one of its name partners. Now he lives and writes full time in Mykonos, his adopted home of 25 years.
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 * Thoughtful police procedurals set in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales * The New York Times * Readers will be well pleased . . . * Stephanie Zvirin, Booklist online * Siger's intimate knowledge of Mykonos adds color and interest to his serviceable prose and his simple premise. The result is a surprisingly effective debut novel * Kirkus * Siger . . . captures the rare beauty of the Greek islands in this series debut . . . His sense of place recalls Donna Leon's Venetian series, but his portrayal of rape and murder is all his own * Library Journal review * Impressive debut . . . Siger's view of Mykonos (where he lives part-time) is nicely nuanced, as is the mystery's ambiguous resolution. Kaldis' feisty personality and complex backstory are appealing as well, solid foundations for a projected series * Publishers Weekly * A very enjoyable and atmospheric book, which captures very vividly the Greek way of life * Eurocrime *
