Synopsis

Set against a glorious Greek backdrop, the intriguing new mystery featuring half Greek, half Scots PI, Alex Mavros

Hired by the wife of one of Greece’s richest men to find her missing fourteen-year-old daughter, Mavros faces an uphill battle. But he’s not the only one looking for Lia . . . When a man’s charred corpse is discovered in a remote farmhouse, and the headless body of another is found in the ancient stadium at Delphi, Mavros confronts the possibility that one of his deadliest foes has returned to Greece, and that there may be a connection with the Lia Poulou case.
