Mykonos After Midnight – Jeffrey Siger
Coming September 2013, is Jeffrey Siger’s fifth novel featuring Andreas Kaldis, feared head of Greece’s special crimes division.
On the celebrated Greek island of Mykonos a legendary nightclub owner is found bludgeoned to death in his home. In his lifetime he’d helped transform Mykonos from an obscure, impoverished Aegean island into a world-renown summertime playground for the world’s rich and powerful, and the Mykonian people into some of the wealthiest in Greece.
All evidence points to obvious killers, but the murder has put long hidden, politically explosive secrets in play and drawn a dangerous foreign investor to the island. Kaldis is certain there’s a far more complex solution to the murder and he vows to find it.
His quest for answers, amid entrenched cultural contradictions that give Mykonos so much of its magic, soon has him battling ruthless opportunists preying on his country’s weakened financial condition and learning that there is a high, unexpected price to pay for his curiosity.
Kaldis is locked in a war with a powerful, clandestine international force willing to do whatever it takes to wrest control of Mykonos from its old guard, no matter what the cost, no matter who must die.
