THE LION OF DELOS
by Anne Worboys
Delacorte Press 1974

This book's locale is the Greek Island of Mykonos and its neighboring island, the sacred archeological site of Delos.

This book, which takes place on the Greek island of Mykenos, is an oldie but goodie in the tradition of Mary Stewart. It's very suspenseful as the English girl searches for her missing twin sister not knowing who to trust. The scenery and the Greek people are well drawn. I'll be looking for more books by this author!
