"Matthews' mastery of every foreign clime she's touched so far will leave readers panting for Dinah's next adventure."
-Rob Kresge, author of Saving Lincoln
Once a rich city state, the island of Samos is today part of Greece. In 1973, on one of Samos' remote beaches, movie star Marilita Stephan murdered her boyfriend, his mother, and a powerful colonel in the military junta, a crime for which she was executed. Forty years later, Dinah Pelerin expects only good times when she arrives on Samos with her boyfriend, Thor. Dinah's fascinated by myths, but she didn't suspect that Thor might be spinning one. Her first hint comes when an Iraqi immigrant is killed and Thor is keenly interested in the crime. But before he can investigate, his car plunges off a cliff and he disappears. Is the old case somehow related to Thor's disappearance?
