In an isolated olive grove on the idyllic Aegean island of
Tinos, revered by pilgrims around the world as the Lourdes
of Greece, the remains of two bodies charred beyond
recognition are discovered chained together amid bits and
pieces of an incinerated Greek flag. An enraged press
screams out for justice for the unknown victims, until the
dead are identified as gypsies and the story simply falls
off the face of the earth.
Is it a gypsy clan war, a hate crime, or something else?
With no one seeming to care, the government has no interest
in resurrecting unwanted media attention by a search for
answers to such ethnically charged questions and orders the
But Andreas Kaldis, feared head of Greeceâ€™s special crimes
division, has other plans. He presses on in his inimitable,
impolitic style to unravel a mystery that yields more dead,
a modern secret society rooted in two-hundred-year-old
ways, and a nagging suspicion that his answers lay in the
sudden influx of non-Greeks and gypsies to Tinos.
It is there, on Tinos, Andreas learns of priceless hoards
of gold, silver, art, and precious gems quietly amassed
over centuries out of the offerings of grateful pilgrims.
He has found a motive for murder and an irresistible
inspiration for robbery.
All that is left for Andreas to do is find the killers
before more die, stop the robbery of the century, and get
married in the process.
