Winner of the Coventry Book Award and shortlisted for the Desmond Elliott Prize and The ITV3 Crime Thriller Awards.
"Anne Zouroudi writes beautifully," says Alexander McCall-Smith. "Her books have all the sparkle and light of the island landscapes in which she sets them. Lovely, delicious prose and plot - as tasty as one of those irresistible honey-soaked Greek confections."
Greece's people, culture and myths inspire many of Anne's short stories and all her Mysteries of the Greek Detective featuring crime fiction's most enigmatic detective, Hermes Diaktoros, whose origins are as much a puzzle as the crimes he solves.
Anne grew up in Yorkshire, has lived in the USA and Greece, and she currently lives in East Anglia. But it was the beguiling, bewitching world of Greece's beautiful islands, where Anne lived for some years after marrying a Greek fisherman in the early 1990s, that have inspired her marvellous Greek Mysteries and allowed her to write authentically about Greece's people, Greek food and culture and the Greek islands themselves.
Her fascinating 'Shirley Valentine' life-story is featured in acclaimed producer Norman Hull's documentary 'I Married the Waiter', broadcast on ITV1 in September 2014.
