Murder in Mykonos
FOR A MEMORABLE DEBUT, see Greek policeman Andreas Kaldis and his creator, Jeffrey Siger, in Murder in Mykonos (Poisoned Pen Press, 978-1-59058-581-8), the first of a projected series based in the Greek Isles. Siger lives part-time on Mykonos, one of the Aegean Cycladic Islands, and his knowledge of the people and the terrain conveys authenticity and vividness.
The story is an intriguing search for a ritualistic serial killer who targets tall, blonde female tourists. Just as intriguing is Kaldiss character, a professional cop who is sent to the island for political reasons, and the variety of interesting, unpredictable local characters. Siger is a writer who knows how to keep things moving.
