“On the morning of the 9th of March, 1944, Angelos Notaras, a law student, was murdered with a revolver in the grounds of the church of Saint Foteini in Iliso...”. A few years later, a twist of fate will ensure that Rodi Simoneti, a young and nervous woman, discovers Angelos’ photograph. She can’t get his gaze out of her head. There’s something irresistibly alluring about the mystery man, and she wants to find out everything she can about him. She wants to reconstruct his past. Now very much in love with him, she embarks on a quest to track down his executioner. Following the blood-stained footsteps of History, she scours memories and records and methodically decodes Angelos’ personality. Her passion to find out the truth undimmed, she meets dreamers and murderers, saints and sinners, until the dark affair leads her to people and places she could never have imagined. A compelling tale enacted in the Greek civil war, when the line separating heroes from traitors is anything but clear-cut. From the author of Like I wanted to live (Greek Book Centre Readers’ Prize, 2010).
