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

Chief Inspector Haritos of the Athens CID has finally made time for a break from work. But when a minor earthquake causes his holiday beach to spit up a corpse, he finds there is no such thing as being off duty."

A well-known nightclub owner and entrepreneur has been murdered, and neither the victim.s beautiful young wife, his estranged daughter or his junkie son seem keen to offer up any clues." "Haritos delves into the worlds of organised crime, football, and even market research in his hunt for the killers. But it seems there are many motives for keeping these crimes unsolved."--Jacket

La espada de Damocles : la crisis en Grecia y el destino de Europa, by Petros Markaris( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in German and Spanish and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pocos novelistas como Petros Márkaris están tan cualificados para arrojar luz sobre la crisis que azota a Grecia y que amenaza con derrumbar el proyecto de unión europea. Con este fin, el escritor griego explica las causas profundas de esta quiebra, la acelerada evolución de la sociedad griega en las últimas décadas y el papel que sus estructuras de poder desempeñan en la actual debacle financiera. Indignado ante la precariedad de la vida cotidiana de tantos ciudadanos, castigados por medidas diseñadas en Bruselas y Berlín, Márkaris alerta de que ésta no es una crisis más, y que sólo volviendo a las raíces del humanismo -- "inventado" precisamente en Grecia -- podremos dejar de sentir esa espada de Damocles sobre nuestras cabezas. Escritos en alemán para publicaciones tan prestigiosas como Die Zeit o Süddeutsche Zeitung, los artículos que componen este volumen se abren con un prólogo dirigido especialmente al lector español, incluye un texto redactado tras las últimas elecciones griegas de junio de 2012 y se cierra con una interesantísima conversacón en la que Márkaris revela datos autobiográficos y algunas claves de su célebre serie de novelas policiacas

Die Krise legt Griechenland lahm. Niemand hält mehr die Arbeitszeiten ein, überall wird diskutiert und protestiert. Arbeitnehmer, Rentner und Studenten gehen auf die Strasse, und ihre Demonstrationszüge verstopfen das Zentrum Athens mehr, als es der Verkehr je tat. Auch Familie Charitos muss den Gürtel enger schnallen. Gerade haben Kostas und Adriani noch die Hochzeit ihrer einzigen Tochter Katerina ausgerichtet und sich zum ersten Mal seit dreissig Jahren ein neues Auto geleistet - und nun wissen sie nicht mehr, wie sie die Raten abzahlen sollen. Als dann innerhalb weniger Tage zwei Banker auf grausame Weise umgebracht werden, herrscht in der Finanzwelt höchste Alarmstufe. Auch weil Presse und Polizei die Hypothese eines Terroranschlags nicht ausschliessen. Der Hass auf die Banken scheint in der Tat immer grösser zu werden: Die Stadt wird über Nacht mit Plakaten tapeziert, auf welchen die Bürger zur Verweigerung der Rückzahlung von Krediten aufgefordert werden. Die Krise mit ihren Auswüchsen beschert Kostas Charitos und der Athener Polizei mehr Arbeit und Hektik denn je zuvor. Geduld und Sorgfalt wären angesagt, doch dafür hat niemand Zeit. Den Zeit ist Geld, und Geld gibt's keins
