Dangerous Days is both a state-of-the nation novel and a thoughtful and engaging crime novel. It is the third adventure for private investigator George Zafiris in crisis-torn Greece.
It shines a light on the most secret and closely-guarded sanctuary of Greek life - the family. While the state lurches between dysfunction and bankruptcy, blood relations turn to each other for support. Debts are written off, misdemeanours forgiven, jobs found for unemployables. But if charity begins at home, it also ends there. Networks of obligation bind people so tight they can never escape. Jealousy runs rampant. Nepotism keeps talent suppressed. Crime and corruption are buried in silence. While solving other people’s problems George gets more deeply entangled in his own. When the offer of work arrives from a polluted family source, he is forced to make an impossible choice between poverty and collusion in crime.
Both the previous novels Codename Xenophon and Blood and Gold have received great praise in the UK,US and in Germany and Dangerous Days takes this crime series to a new level.
'It all adds up to a fast-moving thriller played out against a backdrop of political bedlam — an exciting, provocative read.'
Barry Turner in The Daily Mail
