As he drew closer still, he saw small, white fingers gripping onto the rocks. Then the fingers of one small hand loosed their grip, and the hand made a feeble attempt to wave; and, in that moment, the face's features made sense to him, and he know what he had found ...A painter is found dead at sea off the coast of a remote Greek island. For our enigmatic detective Hermes Diaktoros, the plot can only thicken: the painter's work, an icon of the Virgin long famed for its miraculous powers, has just been uncovered as a fake. But has the painter died of natural causes or by a wrathful hand? What secret is a dishonest gypsy keeping? And what haunts the ancient catacombs beneath the bishop's house? In the fourth Mystery of the Greek Detective, the inimitable Hermes must deal with forgery, betrayal and superstition, and the consequences of all-consuming rage.
