"From the easy banter of its three cops to its clutch of unpredictable villains,
Kaldis' fifth reads more like an Elmore Leonard caper than a whodunit."

#5 Fiction Bestseller (Denver)
Scarface-like characters in a Casablanca-style setting
On the celebrated Greek island of Mykonos a legendary nightclub owner is found bludgeoned to death in his home. In his lifetime he'd helped transform Mykonos from an obscure, impoverished Aegean island into a world-renown summertime playground for the world's rich and powerful, and the Mykonian people into some of the wealthiest in Greece.
All evidence points to obvious killers, but the murder has put long hidden, politically explosive secrets in play and drawn a dangerous foreign investor to the island paradise. Andreas Kaldis, feared head of Greece's special crimes division, is certain there's a far more complex solution to the murder than robbery; one that will be found among ruthless opportunists who've come to prey on his country's weakened financial condition.
Andreas' impolitic search for answers cuts straight into the entrenched cultural contradictions that give Mykonos so much of its magic. He soon learns there is a high, unexpected price to pay for his curiosity as he becomes locked in a war with a powerful, clandestine international force willing to do whatever it takes to change and wrest control of Mykonos away from its old guard, no matter what the cost, no matter who must die.
"On Mykonos, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis plays a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a volatile crime kingpin...From the easy banter of its three cops to its clutch of unpredictable villains, Kaldis' fifth (Target: Tinos, 2012, etc.) reads more like an Elmore Leonard caper than a whodunit."
"Gorgeous Mykonos once again becomes a character when conflicting forces battle for the resort island's future in Siger's fifth series entry."
"Siger's satisfying fifth mystery featuring Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis...keeps the reader engaged."
"Acclaimed (particularly by Greek commentators) for their realistic portrayal of Greek life and culture, the Kaldis novels are very well constructed...solid...clever and intriguing."
"Very gifted American author...very tight plotting...very impressive...[Mykonos After Midnight] was the best...most enjoyable and highly recommended."
"[Siger] has so profoundly captured the essence of Modern Greece and its people, you can't believe he isn't Greek. The reader travels to Greece and is right in the center of the action...Siger is a gifted storyteller. His stories grab you and don't let go."
