George Zammit is persuaded to go to Sicily, a city overshadowed by Mount Etnaz, to investigate the disappearance of his superior’s niece. In his quest, George, and his unlikely allies, find themselves caught between the forces of nature, superstition and organised crime. Along the way, George learns an important lesson about trust and loss.

AJ Aberford

Formerly a lawyer, property company director and, latterly, the owner manager of a Yorkshire craft brewery, AJ Aberford has now retired and turned to writing during the lockdowns of the pandemic. A move to Malta provided the inspiration for the Inspector George Zammit series of five crime and adventure novels set around the Southern Mediterranean. Malta sits midway between Sicily and the North African coast and provides a fascinating backdrop to his writing that draws heavily on organised crime, political corruption and regional conflicts. He loves travel, Mediterranean food, adopting stray cats and riding his bike to secluded swimming spots.
