It’s 1967 and Greece is in turmoil. A group of right-wing army officers has seized power in a strategically planned coup d’etat. Overnight, any person suspected of left-leaning sympathies or lack of loyalty to the new regime is arrested or simply disappears. Many end up in the notorious torture centers, never to be heard from again.
Against this politically charged background, author Loretta Proctor has created a novel of romance and suspense on a very human scale. Max Hammitt, an Englishman, is at odds with Nina, his Anglo-Greek wife. The coup has occurred in conjunction with Nina’s misunderstanding of Max’s efforts to rescue a young woman from her vicious pimp. The headstrong Nina has taken off at the most dangerous of times, and Max must find her before she runs afoul of the military tyrants.
