The Taint of Midas
by Anne Zouroudi, author of the Mysteries of the Greek Detective
- St George's Bay in Symi, Greece, where the Mysteries started...
- "Appealing...In Anne Zouroudi's talented hands, Arcadia comes across as a once-lovely place with traces of the old, fresh, aromatic island still intact, but with ever larger swaths smashed by the machinery of industrial tourism." (Richard Lipez, The Washington Post).
- "Lyrical...a lovely paean to the Greek islands." (Publishers Weekly)
- "A leisurely paced contemporary steeped in Greek mythology...With its wonderful premise for a mystery series, this entry captivates. Hermes is a fastidious philosopher, making this perfect book group material. Highly recommended, particularly for Alexander McCall Smith fans and perhaps the Nero Wolfe set as well." (Library Journal).
