The Doctor of Thessaly

December 2012 Hardcover

Anne Zouroudi, The Doctor of Thessaly: A Seven Deadly Sins Mystery

978-0-316-21787-3, $24.99


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.


Anne Zouroudi was born in England and has lived in the Greek islands. Her attachment to Greece remains strong; the country is the inspiration for much of her writing. She now lives in northern England.
