Thalia, a former deep sea diver, exchanged a successful career and an independent, but lonely life for the domesticity and care of a loving family in the Greek island of her childhood Katafigio. Her peaceful life is disturbed when a young Canadian student goes missing and the police ask for her help to comfort the girl's parents, but Thalia moved by the Canadian couple's concern for their daughter, decides to help with the case. Thalia's investigation puts her in great danger, as she faces ruthless murderers, criminal organizations, and corrupt public servants.
Like the first book in the series, Return To The Aegean - Book 1 (The Aegean Mystery Series), this book is excellently written, well paced, with a gripping and plausible mystery plot. The characters are very well developed, realistic, and likable. Russell's portrayal of the relationships, customs, and everyday life of the island, are realistic and filled with detail and local colour. However, the greatest quality of this book is the beautiful atmosphere. Russell's amazing descriptions of Greek nature and her brilliant use of imagery in the first book were incredible, but this time she outdid herself. The beautiful Greek nature comes alive in the pages and the island is calling out to the reader.
I have to admit that I was sceptical about this sequel, because I felt that the first book was complete in itself, the mystery solved, the characters found the closure they were looking for, and personally reading it I didn't feel the need for a sequel. However, this second book doesn't disappoint, and although I didn't expect to meet these characters again, it was a very nice reunion, and now I cannot wait for the third book in the series.
It is apposite that Russell's hero, Thalia, is a diver, because it is her determination to go deep down below the superficial life of the islands that creates the dramatic tension. And tension there is a plenty, strung through the novel and tuned to perfect pitch.
I was eagerly anticipating this sequel, and it did not disappoint. The climax of the novel, when Thalia and the woman she has rescued from deadly human traffickers are being hunted, is so tense it was impossible for me to put the book down. A real page turner. But relief for the reader is in short supply. No sooner has the thrilling case been closed than another mystery is cruelly opened in anticipation of the next story. Once again I can't wait... Richard Clark
The book doesn't disappoint. Can't wait for book number 3!
