    Stratos Gazis hates being called a contract killer. What he is, is a conscientious fixer. He fixes problems that are only mentioned in whispers. That very few can fix. Things that people are willing to pay handsomely to get done. But now, in the midst of the Greek economic crisis and political turmoil, during a melancholy winter which makes life in Athens even more unbearable than usual, this assassin with the strict moral code is about to get involved in the most high-profile case of his career. Helped by three childhood friends, he discovers that truth is, as ever, a relative thing.
