Summary
Inspector Haritos called to the scene of a murder: the renowned TV journalist Janna has been killed in the broadcasting studio just as she was about to go on the air with some sensational news. Haritos's investigation sucks him deep into the nasty world of the Greek media. When Janna's successor also is murdered, Haritos steps up his investigation. He nearly gets suspended from his job because his theories make various important people uncomfortable. In the end, the killer he unmasks comes as a shocking surprise. The first of three novels featuring Inspector Haritos, Deadline in Athens exposes the corruption that has pervaded both private and public life in Greece since the fall of the military dictatorship, the advent of a democratic government, and the explosion of barely controlled private entrepreneurship

Summary
When an Albanian husband and wife are found dead in their home, Inspector Costas Haritos, a veteran junta-trained homicide detective on the Athens police force, is called to what seems at first to be an open-and-shut case. For the Greek police, two dead Albanians are hardly a matter of concern. But when Albania's celebrity television news reporter Janna Karayoryi insists that the case was closed too early, Haritos becomes unnerved. He doesn't exactly like the ambitious young journalist, but could she be right in thinking the murder has something to do with babies' Before Haritos can find out, Janna is suddenly murdered, moments before she is to go on the air with a startling newsbreak. Did her mysterious report have something to do with the murdered Albanians' Who wanted her silenced, and why' Caught between a bumbling junior officer and higher-ups all too easily influenced by news executives determined to protect their own, Costas Haritos sets out to get to the bottom of the matter-and ends up neck deep in a dark form of capitalism that has emerged in Albania after the dictatorship.
