Hermes Diaktoros visits a remote island which is home to an ancient icon famed for its miraculous powers. But something about the Virgin troubles him, and Hermes calls on an old friend to confirm his suspicions that the icon is a fake. Ready to hand the matter over to the authorities, Hermes intends to leave - until the island's icon painter is found dead at sea.
Did he die of natural causes or by a wrathful hand? What secret is a dishonest gypsy keeping? And what haunts the ancient catacombs beneath the bishop's house?

Unfortunately I am now completely hooked on the greek detective series and am listening to them at a rate which exceeds my monthly credits! I am just downloading the next in the series. The Lady of Sorrows certainly lived up to my expectations - another imaginative story told at a leisurely pace with justice being served in its various ways. I do hope we have not got the beginnings of a love story for our fat man however - sadly the emergence of a love interest always seems to have a detrimental effect on plots!!!
