Hermes Diaktoros, the inimitable Greek Detective, returns in a tale of hubris and Homer, dark coffee and even darker secrets. It is winter in the mountains of northern Greece, and as the snow falls in the tiny village of Vrisi a coffin is unearthed and broken open. But to the astonishment of the mourners at the graveside, the remains inside the coffin have been transformed. Then, in the shadow of the shrine of St Fanourios (patron saint of lost things), a body is found, buried under the fallen snow.
There’s talk of witchcraft, and the devil’s work - but it seems the truth behind both the body and the coffin may be far stranger than the villagers’ wildest imaginings.
