Corfu: a voluptuous island setting is the backdrop for a sensuous mix of ruthless fact and vacation fantasy, narrated by four international voices brought together by crime, faith, and passion. Adrienne arrives from Rome with little more than the clothes on her back, and everything on her trip is questionable ~ from the violent medieval artwork, to the Orthodox icons next to her lover's bed.
A man with a beautiful scar--one that rings his hip and deeply embeds his thigh like a giant reverse question mark--has given her the key to his apartment, and everything on this trip is questionable, from the sepulchered saints and macabre medieval artwork, to the wooden, Orthodox icons stacked by Vaggelis' highly trafficked bed.
While the crazy Corfu birds cry and shriek into the night above the market umbrellas of Ristorante San Giacomo, guns and cocaine pass from her missing backpack to the over-educated night clerk in one of Corfu's best hotels. A straight edged, blue-eyed Italian cop extends himself beyond standard police work when an old Greco-Italian feud resurfaces, and the ties of "family" in its many forms are tested until broken.
