Praise for Prey on Patmos... "Using the Greek Orthodox Church as the linchpin for his story, Siger proves that Greece is fertile new ground for the mystery genre."-Library JournalSaint John wrote the apocalyptic Book of Revelation over 1900 years ago in a cave on Greece's eastern Aegean island of Patmos.
Today, 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.
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. Andreas' impolitic search for answers brings him face-to-face with a scandal haunting the world's oldest surviving monastic community.
He finds that this ancient and sacred refuge harbors some very modern international intrigues that threaten to destroy the very heart of the Church. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Jeffrey Siger practiced law at a major Wall Street law firm until giving it all up to write full-time among the people, life, and politics of his beloved Mykonos.
Prey on Patmos is third in his Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis series. www.jeffreysiger.com
