Publisher's Summary

Ten holidaymakers are bound for Katastrophos, a tiny Greek island steeped in superstition and myth. Ten people whose lives are about to change forever, because one of them is planning a ruthless murder.

Detective Inspector Jack Dawes of the Murder Squad is working undercover to prevent it, and takes his wife, Corrie, to the island, ostensibly on a belated honeymoon. Mayhem ensues when a storm destroys the island’s communications, cutting it off from civilisation. This, and a bizarre island ritual, provide the murderer with a perfect opportunity – but fate intervenes.

Finally, time runs out and a deadly battle of wits develops between policeman and killer. Of the ten who arrive on Katastrophos, not all will return home…

Lots of laughs

What a fun book! Laughed out loud several times. The narrator was wonderful. I could picture each character like I knew them. Can't wait to listen to more by Lloyd.

Nemesis of the Dead

A Greek Island, death stalking a group of tourists, excellent characterisation and a fast-paced plot make this a genuinely gripping read. Agatha christie it isn't, but a light touch keeps humour and drama in tension.
