LoveReading View on The Golden Silence

His early Quintin Dalrymple thrillers were set in a near future Edinburgh, but his Alex Mavros trilogy, of which THE GOLDEN SILENCE is the 3rd, occurs in the Greek islands and Athens where the driven half Scots half Greek amateur investigator is drawn into local cases often linked to his own past. Colourful and frantic, a plunge into the dark side of paradise.
