Deadline in Athens

The Independent said this about Petros Markaris's The Late-Night News (UK title) or Deadline in Athens (US title):

It took a while for Athenian cop Inspector Haritos to reach us, but raise a glass of ouzo now he's here. A gridlocked winter Athens is the far-from-mythical setting for linked tales of murder at the top (the TV elite) and toe (Albanian migrants) of new Greek society. Strongly written, slyly plotted, spiced with drolly satirical sidelights - Markaris is a crime writer to cheer and cherish.

Welcome back Kathryn. You've been busy? Loved the Cavafy poem, and was wondering if the reference was to the Asia Minor disaster?
