Against a background of fear and torture under a military dictatorship in Greece , Max and Nina Hammett struggle to preserve a marriage that has become fraught with jealousy and despair.
In April 1967, a totally unexpected military coup throws Greece into turmoil. People vanish amid terrified rumours of torture and murder. As these events unravel, so does a marriage. Nina Hammett doesn't trust her husband Max, and leaves him in a jealous rage.
But the truth of the matter is that Max was trying to help an abused woman escape her tormentor, not taking her to his bed as Nina imagines. Young, flighty Zoe's pathetic angst puts Max in terrible danger from a ruthless murderer. He must also try to find his wife, who has disappeared into the shadowy depths of Athens. He knows her wilful nature, along with her refusal to cater to the military, could get her killed. Hearing that she is in danger, he sets off on a journey across Greece to find her and to escape his own past . . .
