Symi Books (3)
Now then, if you like a bit of a treasure hunt adventure, comedy, Symi history and reading books where you might recognise certain people and places, you should like ‘Jason and the Sargonauts.’
A mysterious iron chest arrived on the island of Symi, Greece in 1882 and was immediately hidden for its own safety.
121 years later and Jason is working as a holiday rep for SARGO holidays. When his grandmother turns up as one of his guests, she brings with her a locked cigarette case, left to Jason by his recently departed grandfather and given to him on Symi in 1944. The case is opened and reveals a piece of music, but the music is not what it seems, and Jason and his small group of pensioners soon realise that they have stumbled on a secret that has been kept hidden on Symi all these years. A secret both dangerous and valuable.
“This is Dan Brown meets Whitehall Farce with a bit of education about Symi’s history thrown in for good measure. Set on the Greek island of Symi, it’s a fast paced whodunnit with lots of laughs and loads of page turning moments. Yes, it was hard to put down. This book deserves a large audience and stands up there with the best novels about contemporary Greece.” Amazon review
Tomorrow, in our book tour, we leave Symi and set off on another mysterious adventure…
