Praise for Target: Tinos... "Nobody writes Greece better than Jeffrey Siger." -Leighton Gage, author of the Chief Inspector Mario Silva mysteries "Thrilling, thought-provoking, and impossible to put down." -Tim Hallinan, award-winning author of the Poke Rafferty thrillers In an isolated olive grove on the Aegean island of Tinos lies the remains of two charred bodies chained together amid pieces of an incinerated Greek flag. An enraged press screams out for justice for the unknown victims, until the dead are identified as Gypsies. Then the story simply dies. Is it a Gypsy clan war, a hate crime, or something else? With no one seeming to care, the Greek government has no interest in resurrecting unwanted media attention and orders the investigation closed. But Andreas Kaldis, head of Greece's special crimes division, has other plans. He presses on to unravel a mystery that yields more dead, a modern secret society, and questions about the sudden influx of non-Greeks and Gypsies to Tinos. Now Andreas must find the killers before more die, stop the robbery of the century, and get married in the process. 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.
