Publisher's Summary

In the heat of a Greek island summer, some slake their thirsts with cool, clear water. Others prefer something stronger, but disgraced government minister Gikas Fragolis has taken his love of the bottle too far. His habitual drunkenness has cost him his job and lost him many friends - but is it at the root of an enemy's wish to see him dead?

In this first short story featuring the enigmatic Greek detective, Hermes Diaktoros uncovers good intentions gone bad and plumbs the murky depths of human nature for an unlikely killer.

A good short story

I wish it would have been longer so that I could have gotten into the story more. I loved the gruff English detective with a heart. An enjoyable story to read while eating lunch!

The Greek Detective - A Real Treat

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

A gentle, well-written crime short story set in Greece. Fans of Hermes Diaktoros will know exactly what to expect while those who have never encountered 'the fat man' are in for a real treat. 'Still Waters' will have you coming back for more.

Bit of cheat

I have loved this series - and this short story is on exactly the same lines - but perhaps it's time to retire Hermes if he can't go the whole distance.
