The Disappearance of Ophelia Blue


Archaeologist Martin Day has given no thought to Ophelia Blue since the end of their affair twenty years ago. He now owns a house on the beautiful island of Naxos, relishing the cuisine and wine of the Cyclades and working just enough to fund his lifestyle. Then a call arrives from Ophelia. She will be arriving very soon to consult him about something important, which she will explain in person.


Day is excited to see her again, but his pleasure is short-lived. Ophelia disappears after their first evening together, without revealing the true reason for her visit.


The police are unwilling to get involved. The urbane Inspector Cristopoulos has retired, leaving Day to deal with his successor, the difficult Kyriakos Tsountas. In Tsountas’s opinion, Ophelia has left of her own free will. He is not interested in Day's growing suspicion that her disappearance is connected to the legend of a lost antiquity known as the Kallos of Naxos


If Day is to find Ophelia he must do so alone. He will need all his ingenuity and imagination, and quite possibly his courage.
