An uncovered forgery sparks wrath on a remote island in Anne Zouroudi's latest spellbinding crime novel set in modern Greece.

A painter is found dead at sea off the coast of a remote Greek island. For our enigmatic detective Hermes Diaktoros, the plot can only thicken: the painter's work, an icon of the Virgin long famed for its miraculous powers, has just been uncovered as a fake. But has the painter died of natural causes or by a wrathful hand? What secret is a dishonest gypsy keeping? And what haunts the ancient catacombs beneath the bishop's house?

In the fourth of the Seven Deadly Sins mysteries, the inimitable Hermes faces forgery, betrayal, and superstition, and the consequences of all-consuming rage.

The modern adventures of Hermes continue to delight. Anne Zourodoudi writes of the fragrances of Greece so well that I can smell them, herbs and mildew both.

Fascinating mystery. Hermes Diaktoros is certainly a mysterious character. First of this series I've read - I'll be reading more.
And I'll be looking for Greek recipes too. Of course there are some at VPL, but this is a nice food site, Authentic Greek Recipes: Traditional Greek food as cooked by Greek mothers!! Delicious and easy recipes!! http://realgreekrecipes.blogspot.com/
