Paul Johnston's brilliantly conceived novel is the first in a series featuring Greece-based private investigator, Alex Mavros.
When Alex Mavros is asked to track down a missing woman, he jumps at the chance to leave the stifling heat of Athens. Travelling to the small island of Trigono, he soon realises that there is more than one mystery to be solved.
How did a young couple drown in the nets of a fishing boat? Why did a British journalist leave without telling her friends? Why is the millionaire Theocharis so nervous and whose bones does old Maro keep beneath her bed?
The answers lie in events that took place during the Second World War, events that tie in with the island's most ancient history.
In a race to prevent a terrible crime being repeated, Alex Mavros is pitted against a ruthless and depraved killer . . .
