He thought it would reflect badly on his family and reputation to do so before divorced. His collaborators in his shop kept hounding him to get out into the world… and on Mykonos you need go no further than your front door to participate. Being single, I said why not.
The Mykonos Mob (Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis #10) (Hardcover)
I never saw a jaw so close to the floor on a standing man. Our hostess was on us immediately, shepherding us toward the head table. We all had a lot of friends there, and so it was a lot of fun, but my most memorable moment came after our hostess picked Panos to choose and crown the Belle of the Ball from among all those in competition for the title. It was a particularly poignant moment, one filmed for German television, and if anyone ever comes across a tape of that moment, and you see a traditionally dressed Greek man crowning a Gypsy Rose Lee look-alike, look closely.
Ah, the unexpected joys of Mykonos. And yes, the wife came back. So, I guess you could say the Fates played a hand in keeping Panos faithful to the principles that guided every moment of his life…and gave his buddy an unforgettable story in the process. They prepare everything fresh from their own gardens, animals, and winery. But not for conscious abuse.

My worst experience by far was in a self-described upscale restaurant where the bill for a single plate of fruit following the meal was 60 euros. Care to bet whether I paid that charge? Soon after my book first book was published in Greece by Aikaterini Lalaouni Editions first in Greek, then in English , I was surfing the Internet looking to see what mention there might be of Murder in Mykonos.
Jeffrey practiced law at a major Wall Street law firm and established his own New York City law firm before giving it all up to live and write on Mykonos. In addition, each Saturday he blogs about Greece as one of seven renown mystery writers from around the world who post literate observations on the venues for their work to Murder is Everywhere murderiseverywhere.

Soon he is locked in a war with a powerful, clandestine international force willing to do whatever it takes to wrest control of Mykonos.
Saint John wrote the apocalyptic Book of Revelation over 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 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. A young woman on holiday to Mykonos, the most famous of Greeceas Aegean Cycladic islands, simply disappears off the face of the earth.
And no one notices. That is, until a body turns up on a pile of bones under the floor of a remote mountain church. Then the islandas new police chiefathe young, politically incorrect, former Athens homicide detective Andreas Kaldisastarts finding bodies, bones, and suspects almost everywhere he looks. Teamed with the canny, nearly - retired local homicide chief, Andreas tries to find the killer before the media can destroy the islandas fabled reputation with a barrage of world - wide attention on a mystery thatas haunted Mykonos undetected for decades.
Just when it seems things canat get any worse, another young woman disappears and political niceties no longer matter. With the investigation now a rescue operation, Andreas finds himself plunging into ancient myths and forgotten island places, racing against a killer intent on claiming a new victim who is herself determined to outstep him.
When the body of a boy from one of Greece's most prominent families turns up in a dumpster in one of Athens' worst neighborhoods, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis of the Greek Police's Special Crimes Division is certain there's a message in the murder. But who sent it and why? Andreas' politically incorrect search for answers takes him deep into the sordid, criminal side of Athens nightlife and on to the glittering world of Athens society where age - old frictions between old money and new breed jealousy, murder, revenge, revolutionaries, and some very dangerous truths.
In an isolated olive grove on the idyllic Aegean island of Tinos, revered by pilgrims around the world as the Lourdes of Greece, the remains of two bodies charred beyond recognition are discovered chained together amid bits and pieces of an incinerated Greek flag. An enraged press screams out for justice for the unknown victims, until the dead are identified as gypsies and the story simply falls off the face of the earth. Is it a gypsy clan war, a hate crime, or something else?
Target: Tinos (Andreas Kaldis, #4) by Jeffrey Siger
With no one seeming to care, the government has no interest in resurrecting unwanted media attention by a search for answers to such ethnically charged questions and orders the investigation closed. But Andreas Kaldis, feared head of Greece's special crimes division, has other plans. He presses on in his inimitable, impolitic style to unravel a mystery that yields more dead, a modern secret society rooted in two - hundred - year - old ways, and a nagging suspicion that his answers lay in the sudden influx of non - Greeks and gypsies to Tinos.
