St John wrote the apocalyptic Book of Revelation over 1900 years ago in a cave on Greece's eastern Aegean island of Patmos. When a revered monk from that holy island's thousand-year-old monastery is murdered in Patmos's town square during Easter Week, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis is called upon to find the killer.

Andreas's impolitic search for answers brings him face-to-face with a scandal haunting the world's oldest surviving monastic community. On the pristine Aegean peninsula of Mount Athos, isolated from the rest of humanity, twenty monasteries sit protecting the secrets of Byzantium amid a way of life virtually unchanged for more than 1500 years. But today this sacred refuge harbours modern international intrigues that threaten to destroy the very heart of the Church . . . in a matter of days.

MEDIA REVIEWS

An intriguing and well-drawn creation . . . The books are all very well plotted and whilst they are evocative of the rustic tourist landscape of Greece, they are very readable examples of good police procedurals, on a par with other American authors such as Joseph Wambaugh or Ed McBain. I look forward eagerly to reading his next one - Eurocrime

The third case for the appealing Andreas will immerse readers in a fascinating culture - Kirkus

Using the Greek Orthodox Church as the linchpin for his story, Siger proves that Greece is fertile new ground for the mystery genre. Sure to appeal to fans of mysteries with exotic locations - Library Journal review

Pacy . . . the book offers satisfying evil villains, action in exotic locales, jet-setters misbehaving, and Kaldis contemplating imminent fatherhood - Athens Press

Thoughtful police procedurals set in picturesque but not untroubled Greek locales - The New York Times

Mr. Siger is one of those rare writers whose finger is always on the pulse of modern day upheavals. He is never afraid to tackle and expose uncomfortable subjects - subjects most writers avoid...An authoritative and compelling voice, Mr. Siger is a master storyteller - The New York Journal of Books
