Apollo in Tweeds – Barbara Hammond

Shy scholar Douglas Grey’s only worry is the imminent termination of the lease on his Edinburgh flat. Then, he overhears a reference to the mysterious Greek island of Sigandros. Expert in both Greek language and culture, he is persuaded by the attractive social butterfly Catherine to travel to the little known island to rescue her missing brother.

Unfortunately, his great adventure turns out to be an anticlimax, as the young man seems to have no need of the quixotic gesture. It is only when he returns to Edinburgh that fate takes a hand and Douglas finds out what is really going on. He is given a chance to save an ancient temple from desecration and fight an international drug smuggling ring.

Can Douglas find the inner strength to take on both friends and enemies, or even tell which is which? Even with a little help from the goddess Athena, he is no Apollo in Tweeds. Douglas Grey could become a Scottish Indiana Jones. We look forward to a sequel.
