What could a “last date” in downtown Athens, a blood-stained wedding in Chalkidiki, a gambling session-turned-nasty in the Sports Café, a murdered bibliophile, a business trip to icy Venice, an American Bar in Thessaloniki, an old story from the Holocaust, society functions in swish Athenian residences and a man in a white suit have in common? They are just some of the cases Inspector Bekas is called upon to investigate when he’s brought back into active service. Fifteen short stories by contemporary crime fiction writers in honour of Yannis Maris (1916-1979), the acknowledged master of classic Greek crime fiction, and the man who put Greece on the police fiction map as well as writing scripts for a series of classic films noirs.
