Greece’s thriller novelist of record
—Sunday New York Times Book Review, worldwide "Thrills and Chills" issue
"A 'literary star'"
"...thoughtful police procedurals set
in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales."
—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times
"...brimming with suspense and a distinct sense of place..."
"Vivid local color, agreeable central characters, and exciting action scenes make this a winner."
An Aegean April, the ninth Greece-based Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis mystery-thriller, offers a timely, deeply personal exploration of the complexities underlying the flood of refugees across the Mediterranean toward Western Europe. The novel brings to life the many human elements comprising a tragedy far too often summarily described and put out of mind by the phrase, “the Refugee Crisis.”
"vividly depicts the political and economic issues involved in the European refugee crisis... outstanding crime novel."
—Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW
Here's an unsolicited letter I just received from a new fan. It's what makes this writing gig so worthwhile! —Jeff
"I have never written to an author before, but felt compelled to after reading Murder in Mykonos. I enjoy reading novels set in countries I'm visiting, and Greece is no exception. I was pleasantly surprised to stumble on this novel and to find out how well written it was with an intricate plot, well developed characters and lots of interesting history of the island. Most novels set in Greece are light, without substance and quickly forgotten. I'd given up on novels with any depth. Of course, The Magus by John Fowles is an exception, but I read that many years ago. I don't know how I missed you before. I've already purchased Assassins of Athens & will move on to the rest. My husband is reading Murder in Mykonos as I'm writing this & agrees with my assessment." —Marlene C.
