From the real life Shirley Valentine, Anne Zouroudi's seventh Greek mystery with the popular detective, Hermes Diaktoros. The olive harvest is drawing to a close in the town of Dendra, and when Hermes Diaktoros arrives for the celebratory festival he expects an indulgent day of food and wine. But as young men leap a blazing bonfire in feats of daring, one of them is badly burned. Did he fall, or was he pushed? Then, as Hermes learns of a deep-running feud between two families, one of their patriarchs dies. Determined to find out why, Hermes follows a bitter trail through the olive groves to reveal a motive for murder, and uncovers a dark deed brought to light by the sin of gluttony.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Firmly in the delicious subgenre of crime-cum-gastroporn pioneered by Andrea Camilleri ... Essentially gloriously sunny escapism, the perfect holiday read * Daily Telegraph, Summer Reads *
Well written with an interesting story, this brought alive by Greek food described so lovingly you can taste it * Sally Hughes, BBC Good Food Magazine, Summer Reads *
Greece so charmingly portrayed in Anne Zouroudi's novels * The Times, Summer Reads *
Sleuthing and sunshine are the perfect combination, so even if the Great British climate lets you down, you can escape to a Greek Island! * Yours *
Greece ... has never appeared more beautiful or damaged, and secrets lurk behind every ruin. Fortunately, Zouroudi's masterfully compelling detective Hermes Diaktoros is on hand to sort the facts from the myths surrounding the violent death of a mysterious stranger * Daily Mirror *
Anne Zouroudi writes beautifully - her books have all the sparkle and light of the island landscapes in which she sets them. The Lady of Sorrows, her latest, is a gorgeous treat ... Lovely, delicious prose and plot - as tasty as one of those irresistible honey-soaked Greek confections * Alexander McCall Smith *
A cracking plot, colourful local characters and descriptions of the hot, dry countryside so strong that you can almost see the heat haze and hear the cicadas - the perfect read to curl up with * Guardian *
Absorbing and beautifully written, and reveals the savage, superstitious reality behind the pretty facade that is all that most of us know of any Greek island * Literary Review *
