Hermes Diaktoros is distressed to find his good friend Gabrilis suffering and dying by the side of a road, the apparent victim of a hit and run. Gabrilis dies before help can be gotten and the police accuse Diaktoros of killing him. While the police vaguely investigate, Diaktoros feels he must be the one to find out who killed his friend.
In the small island town, the two police officers assigned to the case are ready to give it up when one becomes the victim of blackmail for information about the possible hit and run. Many events, seemingly unrelated, start to converge into one story for the police officers and for Diaktoros. Why did the son of the richest man in town visit Gabrilis the morning he was killed? How does the media truck for the local television and radio station always know where to be when something happens? Why does the city planning officer disappear so suddenly?
Zouroudi has crafted a great investigator in Diaktoros. He knows people and how they think. He knows the land and its history. Although the island of Arcadia is imaginary, the author has wonderfully captured the feel of a small Greek island. The reader will smell the sea, feel the sun, and taste the many delights of food in the book. This is the second book in the Seven Deadly Sins series but it is not necessary to have read them in order. You will enjoy your time following Diaktoros around the island, meeting the people, seeing the sites, and hearing their stories.
