That is, until a body turns up on a pile of bones under the floor of a remote mountain church. Then the island's new police chiefthe young, politically incorrect, former Athens homicide detective Andreas Kaldisstarts finding bodies, bones, and suspects almost everywhere he looks.
Teamed with the canny, nearly-retired local homicide chief, Andreas tries to find the killer before the media can destroy the island's fabled reputation with a barrage of world-wide attention on a mystery thats haunted Mykonos undetected for decades.
Just when it seems things can't get any worse, another young woman disappears and political niceties no longer matter. With the investigation now a rescue operation, Andreas finds himself plunging into ancient myths and forgotten island places, racing against a killer intent on claiming a new victim who is herself determined to outstep him.

"Siger's view of Mykonos (where he lives part-time) is nicely nuanced, as is the mystery's ambiguous resolution. Kaldis's feisty personality and complex backstory are appealing as well, solid foundations for a projected series." - Publishers Weekly.
"His sense of place recalls Donna Leon's Venetian series, but his portrayal of rape and murder is all his own. For collections where foreign-set mysteries circulate." - Library Journal.
