Mykonos holds tight to its past even as it transforms from
an obscure, impoverished Aegean island into a tourist mecca
and summertime playground for the worldâ€™s rich, a process
making the Mykonian people some of the wealthiest in Greece.
Yes, the old guard is still a force to be reckoned with
despite the new money.
One of them, a legendary nightclub owner, has been found
savagely bludgeoned in his home. All evidence points to
obvious thugs. Yet the murder has put long hidden,
politically explosive secrets in play and drawn a dangerous
foreign investor to the island paradise. Andreas Kaldis,
feared head of Greeceâ€™s special crimes division, is certain
thereâ€™s a far more complex solution to the murder than
robbery, and he vows to find it.
His quest for answers cuts straight into the entrenched
cultural contradictions that give Mykonos so much of its
magic and soon has him battling ruthless opportunists
preying on his countryâ€™s weakened financial condition.
Kaldis learns there is a high, unexpected price to pay for
his curiosity as he becomes locked in a war with a powerful,
clandestine international force willing to do whatever it
takes to change and wrest control of Mykonos, no matter the
collateral damage. Such is global crime. And the need for a
wily hero to stand against it.
