The world of politics, the church and the mass media is seen through a story of bloodshed in Petros Martinidis’s latest novel, God Protects Atheists.
A columnist at a Thessaloniki daily newspaper who wrote a doctorate on the relationship between literature and comics assumes the duties of a self-appointed detective. The detective goes from being the pursuer to the pursued and back again.
Martinidis makes fictional use of the scandals that erupted in the church of Greece a few years ago. The conservative, nationalist discourse of the church is set against the freethinking approach of science and art.
A densely constructed plot avoids relying on coincidence and chance events and strongly drawn characters play a vital part in the action.
