A corpse is found, hanged, in an apartment in Kolonaki, the fashionable district of central Athens, a few days after the military coup of 1967. Strange family relationships in an Athenian apartment building. A well-dressed police officer from the local police department is brought in on the case. Suspicious financial dealings have been going on between a lawyer and a film director, and among the occupants of the apartment building. The novel throws an ironic light on the world of Athens back in the late 1960s, on the close of the age of the light bourgeois Greek novel and cinema.
