Was the rumour true about a theft of money from the British army in the 1950’s, when Cypriots were fighting for their independence?

And, if true, where had the money disappeared to? Nearly fifty years later, the mystery was still unexplained. But 2004 was a year when several important matters were determined here on Aphrodite’s isle: Cyprus joined the European Union and referenda were held to let Cypriots decide whether or not they could resolve their differences and re-unite their divided island.

Perhaps the uncertainty surrounding the theft of money would be resolved also…

Peter Head’s novel blends fiction and fact, telling the story of the year 2003-4, a time of important political events in a society already on the brink of change. The author weaves into his story, and his account of the politics of change, an informed look at some of the traditions and rural industries of Cyprus.

How would these be affected by E.U. membership and by the inexorable spread of the concrete jungle to the coasts and villages of this predominantly rural and agricultural economy?
