A woman of a certain age who has three cats underfoot, and has the dream of filling her passport with stamps. Books, classical music, tea, cats, movies, art, fancy needlework, and anything else I can think of.
Very enjoyable thriller set in WWII Salonica, Greece. Slow start, but I was sucked in very quickly, and found the main character, Costas Yannis, very believable as an everyman drawn into a world of spies and intrigue and human smuggling.
