Description
In this fourth mystery in Anne Zouroudi's evocative series set in modern Greece (following The Doctor of Thessaly), enigmatic inspector Hermes Diaktoros—known simply as "the fat man"—visits a remote island, home to a celebrated icon. The Lady of Sorrows washed ashore in 1863, and is said to have saved numerous sailors from drowning. But the fat man has his doubts, and an art historian confirms that the painting is a fake. Before the fat man can report the fact, however, the island's resident icon painter and restorer is found dead under suspicious circumstances.

"This is a sun-drenched, atmospheric tale, gentle in tone despite the forgery, murder, incest, and betrayal in its pages. Seldom are locales portrayed in so appealing a fashion."—Booklist

"Anne Zouroudi writes beautifully—her books have all the sparkle and light of the island landscapes in which she sets them. The Lady of Sorrows, her latest, is a gorgeous treat."—Alexander McCall Smith
