'An outstanding debut novel.'
When Marina, travel writer and journalist, arrives to bathe illegally at the Kaiafas thermal springs in Greece, she encounters the captivating Dimitri, who bathes beside her naked. In the warm waters of the pool she is drawn to this mysterious stranger and feels a frisson of desire pass between them. She discovers he is a man of many surprises and passions-astronomy, travel, modern art, Greek antiquities and cuisine.
Yet Greece is in turmoil with the country bankrupt, its leaders begging for debt relief and its citizens unemployed or unpaid. Serious civil unrest is on the brink of exploding into anarchy as desperate migrants fleeing war-torn countries swarm into the country daily.
Will love flourish in the heat of the Mediterranean sun and survive against this backdrop of imminent chaos in the land where gods once walked?
