“Fire on the Island” is a playful, romantic thriller set in contemporary Greece, with a gay Greek-American FBI agent, who is undercover on the island to investigate a series of mysterious fires—that’s what the blurb says.
What is my take on the novel? Well, the book doesn’t speak of a postcard-Greece one might encounter when spending one’s holidays holed up in a vacation resort, but the real country with its heart-rending present-day problems… Reading this book really was like being in Greece. Enjoyable read, when all is said and done. Recommended to all crime fiction lovers.
