As all the other 5 star reviewers have said this is a book you can't put down! I know Greece very well and have travelled widely over its remote mountain areas and 'unknown' islands and often sensed an underlying and uncomfortable current underneath the apparently idyllic setting and lifestyle of the people living in these areas. I am not suggesting that the subject matter here is widespread, rather that it is very topical, a subject we have all had to get to grips with in the last few years. What the author does put across so well is the beautiful but forbidding landscape, the 'old-fashioned' culture and the feeling that we who are not Greek often do feel uncomfortable yet are drawn to the immense beauty of Greece and the 'Filoxenia' - hospitality shown to strangers. I can't begin to review the believable plot (although you will wish you did not believe it) or the well-drawn characters, or the deep emotions created in this book without creating a 'spoiler', so buy it and read it!

The range of viewpoints covered in this novel adds to the grim tale. I shudder to imagine the circumstances, but John has done so in a deft manner resulting in a gripping story. It is not a uniquely Greek situation, it just happens to be set in Greece.

Can you enjoy reading a novel on a dark subject? Yes, if it is handled in the way John Manuel does in this gripping story where you begin to understand the background (without voyeuristic details), are compelled by the action, feel for the characters and wonder what the outcome will be. Of course it is in a Greek setting which is always an attraction for me. Different to your usual genres, but up to your usual standards. Well done John.

I enjoy reading any novel set on a Greek island and this was no exception. Good and interesting plot which really left me wondering to
the very end what the outcome would be. An excellent read and well recommended.

A bit different to John's other books but nevertheless very enjoyable, albeit in a 'dark' sort of way. It is a book which is difficult to put down as you need to find out what will happen next. Highly recommended especially as it takes you back to Greece, and the way John writes means you can picture the landscape and the scenery very well. Definitely 5 stars for this one.

My first encounter with John Manuel's fictional work. Next time I download one of his I'll make sure I have a clear day, as once I started to read this one I couldn't stop to go to work, go to the loo or even cross the room to turn the light off. Great tension created from the start and maintained throughout. Some likable and believable characters. Beautiful descriptive insight is provided on Greek Island everday life, (not that the impression is given that the goings on in this story are necessarily 'everyday') giving an immersive sense of place without being intrusive to the plotline which rattles along at a satisfying pace. A great read.

This book was a a bit of a departure from his earlier works both the Rambling from Rhodes series (fabulous) and fictional novels. Book had excellent flow and held me captivated till the end. I do commend him for tackling this subject which is a difficult one in all countries of the world due to stigma and shame. It ruins lives too often. I was a bit saddened to come face to face with the fact that it could be happening in some of our idyllic islands. Sometimes one would rather not know. Next book soon please as I need my Rhodes fix in Spring and Summer.

Well what can I say but wow, yet another great read from this talented author. Had me on the edge of my seat a few times, and unable to put it down as wanted to know what was happening next. Don't want to give anything away about this brilliant novel as quite new out but what I can say is, buy it, read it, you will be glad you did.
