Prey on Patmos: An Inspector Kaldis Mystery (Hardcover)
Saint John wrote the apocalyptic Book of Revelation over 1900 years ago in a cave on Greece's eastern Aegean island of Patmos. When a revered monk from that holy island's thousand year-old monastery is murdered in Patmos' town square during Easter Week, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis of Greece's Twenty-First Century Special Crimes Division is called upon to find the killer before all hell breaks loose...in a manner of speaking. Andreas' impolitic search for answers brings him face-to-face with a scandal haunting the world's oldest surviving monastic community. On the pristine Aegean peninsula of Mount Athos, isolated from the rest of humanity, twenty monasteries sit protecting the secrets of Byzantium amid a way of life virtually unchanged for more than 1500 years. But today this sacred refuge harbors modern international intrigues that threaten to destroy the very heart of the Church...in a matter of days.
About the Author
Jeffrey Siger was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, practiced law at a major Wall Street law firm, and later established his own New York City law firm where he continued as one of its name partners until giving it all up to write full-time among the people, life, and politics of his beloved Mykonos. Prey on Patmos is the third in his Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis series. The first in the series, Murder in Mykonos, was the #1 best selling English-language novel in Greece and his best-selling second in the series, Assassins of Athens, was called "international police procedural writing at its best" (Booklist, starred review). The Greek press has described him as a "prognosticator" of Greece's societal unrest and attitudes. Jeffrey Siger is a retired attorney who now splits his time between New York and his adopted home of Mykonos, Greece.
