Overview

"If you write anything about this, you will not leave Greece alive."

Only a rash outsider would dare disrupt Greece's illegal trade in women. Meet Agnes Jones: she is very rash indeed.

Trafficking in women is big business in Greece. Thousands of intended victims arrive in the country each year, unaware the respectable positions they've come to fill don't exist. What awaits them instead is a brutal initiation into a dark world from which few escape and where mafia-style bosses ply their trade without let or hindrance.

So when Agnes Jones comes along, cycling round Greece with her tent, her primus and her high-flown ideals, it doesn't take long before she's made herself some powerful enemies.

The drama unfolds in a deceptively paradisiacal setting on the Peloponnesian peninsular. But Agnes Jones isn't quite what she seems either: she's not just a travelling journalist who has stumbled by accident into something dark and dirty. She's been planning this trip for a very long time and her campaign against the Corporation isn't professional-it's personal.

With an intrepid heroine in a tight situation, an exotic location, and just a hint of romance, the Incorruptible follows in the tradition of Mary Stewart's classic romantic suspense adventures.

Meet the Author

Margaret Eleanor Leigh is a writer without roots. Born and raised in apartheid South Africa, she's lived in Wales, New Zealand, England, Greece and Scotland. Now she's back in Wales, the land of her fathers. Her working past is just as colourful: she's been a journalist, a bureaucrat, a university tutor, a bookseller, and a proof-reader.

This unsettled and chaotic life has its drawbacks. The only place she can honestly call home is the seat in front of her computer. But it also has its advantages: giving her a rich seam of experiences to mine-an invaluable resource for any writer.

Margaret has recently published a variety of books which were written over a period of several years. There are three crime novels, a self-deprecating travelogue, and most recently, a quartet of children's books.
