Stunning, urgent novel starring the Valencian detective Max Cámara, a tale of corruption and brutal crime in a collapsing Spain.
After months away in Madrid, Chief Inspector Max Cámara is back in Valencia, with his partner Alicia and his anarchist, marijuana-growing grandfather Hilario. In the old police headquarters, the mood is tense, as the chief hunts for cuts -- who will go, Cámara or his friend Torres? The two men are flung into action on seemingly separate cases, the suicide of an ex bank-clerk and the brutal murder of a young American woman. Around them the city is erupting into demonstrations and near riots. The king is ill, banks are closing, hospitals are in chaos, homes are lost, demonstrators riot and rightwing thugs patrol the street. The tunnels beneath the streets are at once a refuge and a source of anger. And as the blood flows Cámara roars on his motorbike straight into the heart of trouble.
This dazzling new Cámara novel -- tightly plotted, constantly surprising -- full of vivid characters, exposes the dark underside of today'’s Spain. A powerful, gripping page-turner, it confirms Max Cámara as the detective to watch, feeling the pulse of the moment.
