By Jack Higgins

The Greek islands, sun-drenched and tranquil, evoke images from a vacationer brochure. It takes a distinct mind's eye to dredge their blood-soaked background whilst, as a subject matter land in WW II, island revolts have been beaten through the occupying Germans.

In these days, Hugh Lomax was once despatched by way of the British to assist the Greeks of their fight. He succeeded brilliantly, yet on leaving for an additional project used to be betrayed. those that collaborated with him have been accomplished and survivors, no longer unnaturally, held Lomax accountable for the carnage.

Why don't you have a quick look round for old tunes' sake and then go on to Crete with me? They'll show you a better time in Herak-leion than they will here," Lomax shook his head. " Papademos shrugged and went back into the deck-house. They were close inshore now, the great central peak of the island towering three thousand feet above them. As the little steamer rounded the curved promontory crowded with its white houses, a single-masted caicque, sails bellying in the breeze, moved out to sea.
