9781908524805: The Road to Ithaca (Martin Bora)

The fifth in the Martin Bora WWII mystery series. In May 1941, Wehrmacht officer Bora is sent to Crete, recently occupied by the German army, and must investigate the brutal murder of a Red Cross representative befriended by SS-Chief Himmler. All the clues lead to a platoon of trigger-happy German paratroopers, but is this the truth?

Bora takes to the mountains of Crete to solve the case, navigating his way between local bandits and foreign resistance fighters. With echoes of Claus von Stauffenberg, Bora is torn between his duty as an officer and his integrity as a human being.

Review:

Praise for the series:

TIN SKY is the best crime novel of the month. Terror and suspicion on the Eastern Front. We hail a bold series set in the Second World War. This fine novel is packed with tense moments and moral ambiguity.’ Times

In TIN SKY Pastor effectively melds a well-constructed whodunit with a grim portrayal of the Eastern front.” PW Starred Review

A DARK SONG OF BLOOD is historical crime fiction at its best, vividly re-creating the atmosphere of a city occupied by an increasingly desperate army. Sunday Times

The historical milieu of these books is grim, but Pastor’s character examinations are precise and engrossing.’ Kirkus

The tone of LIAR MOON has a flu-like grimness, appropriate the 1943 setting. Pastor is excellent at providing details (silk stockings, movie magazines, cigarettes) that light up the setting.” Booklist

Pastor succeeds at painting a memorable picture of Fascist Italy through the lens of ordinary police procedure carried out under extraordinary circumstances.”Publishers Weekly

An impressive and intelligent novel.” The Times

LUMEN’s plot is well crafted, her prose sharp a disturbing mix of detection and reflection.”
Publisher’s Weekly

And don’t miss LUMEN by Ben Pastor. An interesting, original and melancholy tale.” Literary Review
