    • Abstract:
      Summary: Delphi once stood at the center of the world, where kings and warriors journeyed to hear its Oracle speak. Athenian Kharon chooses modern Delphi to rebuild his life but his assassin's skills so in demand, that his fate does not rest entirely in his own hands. Greece is being flooded with bomba: counterfeits of the most celebrated alcoholic beverages and wine brands and the woman behind the conspiracy demands Kharon's skills. Chief Inspector Kaldis enters a political and media firestorm that threatens to bring down Greece's government.

Booklist Reviews 2015 September #2

*Starred Review* Siger brings Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis some very big challenges in his seventh mystery (following Sons of Sparta, 2014) set in troubled contemporary Greece. Political shenanigans, economic crises, and class conflict were as prevalent in ancient times as they are today, so it is no surprise that Kharon, a gifted assassin, living in beautiful Delphi and trying to rebuild his life on the straight and narrow, should fall under the spell of a thoroughly evil underworld boss, a modern Oracle of Delphi. With no choice but to do the oracle's bidding or be exposed for his past killings, Kharon is dispatched to assassinate those who would interfere with the boss' counterfeit liquor trade, which has caught the eye of Kaldis and his Special Crimes Division. There are multiple sources of appeal here: the fast-paced plot, the landscape, and, as always, the appealing camaraderie shared by Kaldis and his crew, as well as the bantering relationship between the inspector and his well-connected wife, Lila. The final plot twist proves well worth the wait, but it won't take readers long to get there as they will be turning pages at a ferocious clip. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

LJ Reviews 2015 October #1

A killer named Kharon (for the mythological ferryman who transports the dead across the River Styx) and bomba, or counterfeit wine, complicate the lives of Chief Inspector Kaldis and his team. The seventh book in Siger's Greek procedural series (Sons of Sparta) features a strong sense of place and a devious plot.

PW Reviews 2015 August #1

Captivating villains elevate Siger's seventh mystery featuring Chief Insp. Andreas Kaldis (after 2014's Sons of Sparta), a by-the-numbers procedural in which Kaldis, head of Greece's special crimes division, works to stem the flow of counterfeit liquor. As the counterfeit alcohol's poisonous formula claims its first victims, a mysterious cult leader and businesswoman known only as Teacher hires reclusive assassin Kharon as part of her plan to control Greece's wine smugglers. Though the pair's clashing ethical systems constantly threaten to tear them apart, their partnership, built around respect and dangerous necessity, makes them nearly unstoppable. Unfortunately, in comparison to their brutally inventive adversaries, the detectives come across as pedestrian and bumbling. The many investigators under Kaldis's command are not nearly as well characterized as Kharon and Teacher, and quickly begin to blend together. Readers may find themselves racing through the detectives' investigation, hoping to land on another section exploring Kharon and Teacher's dark friendship. (Oct.)
