Ashes

by Sergios Gakos

A fiendishly complicated narrative switching, non chronologically, between third person and two first persons to describe equally complicated events and emotions. But lovers of noir thrillers won't be able to put it down and the novel should also appeal to those interested in contemporary Greece.

Extract

'It would be really easy to have you up on three counts of premeditated murder, which means that you're talking thirty years, and that's with a really nice judge. With a not so nice one: life. Now I know it was an accident. I believe you, but the judge and jury, the jury mainly, are not going to be half so open-minded.'
Translated by Anne-Marie Stanton-Ife
