Summary

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.

Well written and whimsical

Those of you who do not necessarily thrive on gore in mystery books might like this series.
They are plotted so well with lovely, sensual Greece as a living background. Descriptions of place, food, smells are all lyrically done as are the light handed allusions to Ancient Greek history.
Terrific holiday read.
I’m off to buy some Greek food ingredients.
Oh and Mr Barrett continues to make reading out loud seem so easy and for me, listening like a comforting breeze.

Another superb book about the Greek Detective

I've now heard four of these, back to back. Brilliantly narrated by Sean Barrett whose voice is perfect for this series. The stories are intersting, always with a twist that you haven't seen. They give a real feel of life on the Greek Islands for the islanders themselves - not the tourist side at all. Beautifully written and once started, you have to listen at one sitting.
