A focus on odd experiences during work or travels when it really seemed to someone (the author or others) that whatever was happening was the most logical course of action. When you are in the moment, "logic" becomes fluid. If someone had told me before moving to Seoul or Ho Chi Minh City or some of these other places that all these strange things would happen, I'd laugh it off and say "you're outta your mind!"
Hellenic Police Captain COSTA PAPACOSTA and Lieutenant IOLI CARA are back, faced with four brutal cases all strangely connected to the Greek church. Time is against the two investigators and lives are on the line... Join Papacosta and Cara on a roller coaster of emotions, death and faith. Follow the trail of mystery across the majestic Greek islands and try to solve the puzzle before the shocking end!
