Novels set in Cyprus

Anyone come across any good fictional work set in Cyprus? I like thrillers and historical fiction and would be interested to read any such that has been based around the island.

Thanks for the recommendation

I enjoyed this one - set in both London and Cyprus in the 60s

I'm afraid not. Nothing good. Even the Hislop one was not worth reading.

However, I just came across a summer read set in Cyprus which I bought but have not opened yet. It's a Sunday Times top ten bestseller and has been praised as a page-turner etc.
It's:

The Olive Tree by Lucinda Riley

Don't read anything written by Brits; it's just crap. :wink:
