The Aegean Greek island of Mykonos is a world-renowned, 24/7 hot-spot playground for the international rich and famous. When a corrupt former police colonel running the island's protection rackets is gunned down, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis finds himself face-to-face with the nation's top crime bosses, all just as baffled as Andreas over who's responsible for the assassination—and why.
While Andreas wrestles for answers in an effort to head off an all out war for control of the island's vice operations, his wife, Lila, struggles to find a meaningful role for herself beyond wife and mother.
Andreas' investigation and Lila's search bring them to her parents' summer home on Mykonos where she meets Toni, an American ex-pat with a contagious, iconoclastic zest for life, a reputation as a fixer and finder of stolen goods, and a late night gig as a piano player in a gender-bending bar. Together they hit upon a plan to mentor young island girls caught up in an exploitative culture, unaware that their well-intended plans are on a deadly collision course with Andreas' investigation.
"Armchair travelers will have fun [with] Siger's entertaining 10th mystery featuring Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis.... Kaldis and Kouros are soon drawn into what is shaping up to be a turf war for control of the island's many lucrative and shady dealings—from prostitution to exploitive real estate deals.... Siger seasons Kaldis's investigation with abundant slices of Greek history and island mores."
"The tenth Kaldis title is an entertaining read."
"Jeffrey Siger's mysteries featuring Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis comprise one of the most consistently strong series in our genre. Jeff has a way of predicting political, social, and cultural aspects of Greece before they happen—so when his books are released that are incredible relevant and always fascinating. And it never hurts to spend some time in paradise... well, except for the dead bodies."
"I can't think of any other series that brings present-day Greece to life like Jeffrey Siger's Andreas Kaldis mysteries. I love these books, and The Mykonos Mob is an excellent addition... The pitch-perfect setting, an intriguing mystery, a humdinger of a showdown at book's end, AND some fantastic characters. Is The Mykonos Mob a winner? You'd better believe it!"
