Cyprus in the late 1950s is a tragedy waiting to happen. Under the colonial rule of Britain, the Greek community longs for hnosis - union with Greece - and that longing, channelled by EOKA, has turned to violence.Petros Theolides epitomises this transition. He begins innocently enough as a leafleteer and slogan writer, but progresses with a dreadful and measured inevitability to bomber and murderer of policemen and soldiers, and peaks as the executioner of his best friend as a traitor to the cause.Jailed and under sentence of death, the climax is stayed when EOKA capture John Blake, a policeman seconded to Cyprus from the United Kingdom, together with his Turkish-Cypriot interpreter. The choice is simple. Hang Theolides and Blake will hang too. Hassan, a mere Turk, will simply be disposed of.What can the civil arm do? There is always the chance that Blake will escape or be found by the security forces. How long can one wait and hope? And are there no consequences attached to the death of a Turkish interpreter?
