Deadline in Athens by Petros Markaris( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspector Haritos called to the scene of a murder: the renowned TV journalist Janna has been killed in the broadcasting studio just as she was about to go on the air with some sensational news. Haritos's investigation sucks him deep into the nasty world of the Greek media. When Janna's successor also is murdered, Haritos steps up his investigation. He nearly gets suspended from his job because his theories make various important people uncomfortable. In the end, the killer he unmasks comes as a shocking surprise. The first of three novels featuring Inspector Haritos, Deadline in Athens exposes the corruption that has pervaded both private and public life in Greece since the fall of the military dictatorship, the advent of a democratic government, and the explosion of barely controlled private entrepreneurship

Moving from Paris and Munich to London and a mountain village in central Greece, he meets a young wom

Rich in symbolism and magical realism, this complex and wondrous family story unfolds nonsequentially in ten interrelated tales.
