Careless talk costs lives – and with zero chance of a refund.
Early August in Greece wasn’t ideal for sitting inside a stifling hot camper van to carry out a surveillance operation, but money was tight, and Trevor and Sandra had been in no position to turn down any job that was offered to them.
But a little physical discomfort was nothing compared to what came next. Blackmail, murder and kidnapping had definitely not been on the agenda when wealthy businessman Alexandros Barkas hired them to get evidence of his wife’s infidelity.
And what was the reason for freelance hitman Jimmy MacFarland’s sudden appearance? Was it sheer coincidence or was he intent on wreaking the ultimate revenge on Trevor and Sandra?
“We are all Greeks. Our laws, our literature, our religion, our arts have their root in Greece”
Percy Bysshe Shelley
If you want to know what it’s really like in Greece, have a listen to:A Kilo of String – a series of short podcasts about my – often bizarre – experiences as a Brit living in Greece with the occasional digression into total irrelevances.
I’ve also started another series of podcasts called One Thing and Another, episodes of which aren’t necessarily about Greece (although the first one is).
