A painter is found dead at sea off the coast of a remote Greek island. For our enigmatic detective Hermes Diaktoros, the plot can only thicken: the painter’s work, an icon of the Virgin long famed for its miraculous powers, has just been uncovered as a fake. But has the painter died of natural causes or by a wrathful hand? What secret is a dishonest gypsy keeping? And what haunts the ancient catacombs beneath the bishop’s house?

In the fourth of the Seven Deadly Sins mysteries, the inimitable HermesĀ faces forgery, betrayal, and superstition, and the consequences of all-consuming rage.

DESCRIPTION

A jilted bride weeps on an empty beach. A local doctor is attacked in an isolated churchyard. Trouble arrives at a bad time to the backwater village of Morfi, just as the community is making headlines with a visit from a high-ranking government minister. Fortunately, where there’s trouble, there’s Hermes Diaktoros, the mysterious fat man whose tennis shoes are always pristine and whose investigative methods are always unorthodox.

Hermes mustĀ investigate a brutal crime, thwart the petty machinations of the town’s ex-mayor and his cronies, and try to settle the troubled waters of two sisters’ relationship. But how can he unravel a mystery that not even the victim wants solved?

Set against a sparkling Mediterranean backdrop, THE DOCTOR OF THESSALY is a spellbinding mystery about the dark consequences of envy.
