Thirty-one years after writing the historical novel "The Hour of the Bell" - set in the first year of Greece's war of independence from the Turkish Empire — Petrakis now carries the narrative forward in his newest work, "The Shepherds of Shadows." With this powerful sequel, Petrakis captures the fury and ferocity of revolution in the country that formed the bedrock of western culture.
