Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks

Duration: 8 hours 50 minutes
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?
Kaldis' politically incorrect search for answers takes him deep into the sordid, criminal side of Athens and its nightlife and on to the glittering society world of Athens where age-old frictions between new money and old breed jealousy, murder, revenge, revolutionaries, and some very dangerous truths.
Jeffrey Siger combines his unique perspective and insider-like knowledge of Greece to create a highly entertaining yet thought provoking novel-for Assassins of Athens is a Greek tragedy of another sort.
