Speaking of crime, this week, J. Kingston Pierce chooses The Silver Stain by Paul Johnson:
Half-Greek, half-Scots gumshoe Alex Mavros (The Golden Silence, 2004) gets involved with a film being made about the 1941 German invasion of Crete. When one of the movie’s consultants is found hanged, Mavros must determine whether the tragedy has to do with old animosities or a conspiracy involving drugs and antiquities theft.
