Anne conceived The Mysteries of the Greek Detective Series as seven novels, each based on one of the Deadly Sins and set mainly in the Greek islands. Designed to appeal to fans of well-written mysteries, the books combine highly original plots and engaging characters in vividly-drawn and atmospheric settings.
“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
“Absorbing and beautifully written, and reveals the savage, superstitious reality behind the pretty façade that is all that most of us know of any Greek island” Literary Review
“Diaktoros is a delight… There is also 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 as the nights draw in” Guardian
Anne’s work has received wide critical acclaim. She has been shortlisted for the ITV3 Crime Thriller Award for Breakthrough Authors, and The Messenger of Athens, the first of the Greek Detective Series, was longlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize for first novels with word of mouth appeal. The Whispers of Nemesis won the East Midlands Book Award in 2012, and The Bull of Mithros won the ‘Murder and Meyhem’ category in the Coventry Inspiration Book Awards 2014, beating John LeCarre, William Boyd and Gillian Flynn.
