If you’re a fan of crime fiction or a lover of Greece and all things Greek, you’ve come to the right place!
Anne Zouroudi is the creator of Hermes Diaktoros, one of crime fiction’s most enigmatic characters. Here you can find out all about Anne – the latest on her Greek detective books, events she’ll be attending – and read her monthly blog.
Anne’s award-winning novels are set amongst the beautiful landscapes of Greece – between the olive groves and sparkling blue seas – where time has little meaning, and the pressures of modern life are easily forgotten.
Hermes – known as the fat man – is tasked with bringing justice where there is none, and righting wrongs whose roots are sometimes buried deep. Yet in searching out the answers to the puzzles that he finds, he himself remains a mystery. On whose authority does he act? And how does he know of dramas played out long ago?
Anne Zouroudi writes beautifully – her books have all the sparkle and light of the island landscapes in which she sets them. The Lady of Sorrows, her latest, is a gorgeous treat…Lovely, delicious prose and plot – as tasty as one of those irresistible honey-soaked Greek confections. – Alexander McCall-Smith
Diaktoros is a delight. There is also a cracking plot, colourful local characters and descriptions of the hot, dry countryside so strong that you can almost see the heat haze and hear the cicadas. – Guardian
