The Feast of Artemis by Anne Zouroudi
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is the seventh book in Zouroudi’s charming Greek Mystery series so those new to it might want to start with The Messenger of Athens where we first met Hermes Diaktoros. It’s a lovely series with a fun and quirky detective. For fans, this is one of the best, with Diaktoros dispensing his usual moral justice when rivalry between two families leads to murder. A hugely enjoyable and satisfyingly complex plot but also laced with the wonderful details of Greek life that make Zouroudi’s books so delightful.

If you like Anne Zouroudi you might also like to read books by Sarah Alexi, Jeffrey Siger and Andrea Camilleri.

Synopsis

The Feast of Artemis by Anne Zouroudi

The olive harvest is drawing to a close in the town of Dendra, and when Hermes Diaktoros arrives for the celebratory festival he expects an indulgent day of food and wine. But as young men leap a blazing bonfire in feats of daring, one of them is badly burned. Did he fall, or was he pushed? Then, as Hermes learns of a deep-running feud between two families, one of their patriarchs dies. Determined to find out why, Hermes follows a bitter trail through the olive groves to reveal a motive for murder, and uncovers a dark deed brought to light by the sin of gluttony.

I 'Lovereading' because it lets me see what new books are around with a detailed synopsis and readers' reviews.

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!
