Following a passionate but truncated love affair events beyond their control begin to overwhelm them and tragedy befalls each as they struggle to make sense of events, themselves and the world in which they live which, as they discover, is full of appalling contradictions.
Ariadne is drawn into the spider's web that is Minas Industries and as Chief Operations Officer it falls to her to make sense of what is happening on the Lasithi plateau on Crete where the company's central operations are located. Ariadne is restricted from accessing Section 31, an underground division of the complex off-limits to just about everyone, but it becomes clear that some terrible secret exists behind the walls of the organisation. In seeking to understand and expose that mystery she unlocks the entrance to an underground labyrinth that has as its centre a monstrous secret.
An intense new thriller loosely based on the ancient myth of Theseus and the Minotaur, Lasithi, presents a twisted version of the classic tale for modern audiences. With tragedy at the heart of the novel and terrible secrets threatening to be unveiled in a heartless world, a quest to better humanity begins to fall foul because of dark forces at work.
