Sons of Sparta by Jeffery Siger

Sons of Sparta: A Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis MysterySons of Sparta: A Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis Mystery by Jeffrey Siger
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


At times this seemed more of a Greek comedy rather than the billed murder mystery. The relationship between the principal characters all police employees is very entertaining, almost telepathic and aids to lighten the reality of the murder itself. Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis allows his colleague Detective Yianni Kouros to investigate the mysterious death of his uncle not long after a family get together in the isolated southern region of Mani. With a tradition of family feuds going back centuries, things are not quite what they seem and soon Kaldis is guiding the investigation from Athens. This is a very entertaining murder mystery full of lighter moments, and minimal Greek history to set the background and atmosphere. This is the sixth in this series of cases for Kaldis written by Jeffery Singer as a frequent visitor to Greece uses his personal knowledge to great effect.
