So many have praised Mary Stewart’s writing it is hard to find words to describe her work. I have read most of her books, several of them more than once. In this installment, we find Nicola Ferris who is working at the British embassy in Athens preparing for the Easter Holiday away from the crows expect in the city. She has learned Greek because of her work. Offered a ride to her location she arrives one day earlier than she planned. Nicola decides to follow a large white bird up the draw. There she encounters Stratos who leads her to Mark who is injured as he stumbled upon into a murder scene and is hiding from the villains. He was traveling with his younger brother who has disappeared. Mark and Stratos send Nicola to her original plans to prevent her from becoming another victim. Instead, Nicola walks into the center of the problem. What will happen? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND SERIES.
