- DescriptionSaint John wrote the apocalyptic Book of Revelation over 1900 years ago in a cave on Greece s eastern Aegean island of Patmos.When a revered monk from that holy island s thousand year-old monastery is murdered in Patmos town square during Easter Week, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis of Greece s Twenty-First Century Special Crimes Division is called upon to find the killer before all hell breaks loose in a manner of speaking.Andreas impolitic search for answers brings him face-to-face with a scandal haunting the world s oldest surviving monastic community.On the pristine Aegean peninsula of Mount Athos, isolated from the rest of humanity, twenty monasteries sit protecting the secrets of Byzantium amid a way of life virtually unchanged for more than 1500 years.But today this sacred refuge harbors modern international intrigues that threaten to destroy the very heart of the Church in a matter of days.
