Her book, The Shyster's Daughter:
A Memoir (Etruscan
Press, 2012), is a story of love, crime, and the unbreakable
bond between father and daughter. Priamos’s father,
a high-profile Greek defense attorney, died under mysterious
circumstances. When she began to investigate, she discovered
a side to him that wreaked havoc with her family’s
cherished image of him as a hard-working, honest man.
Her findings eventually led to a stunning revelation
on how we choose to remember family.
