(Max Cámara 4)
As Valencia implodes, things are getting dangerous and personal for Cámara
Spain is corrupt and on the brink of collapse.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 in on his motorbike...
Cámara is back in Valencia and 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 investigating the suicide of an ex- bank clerk and the brutal murder of a young American woman. As the city erupts around them, their case takes them into the heart of the trouble.
“One of the most creative writers working within the field of crime fiction, and one of the most entertaining”
Barry Forshaw, Daily Express
“A gripping drama set against the backdrop of Spain's economic woes”
Natasha Harding, Sun
“A series that just gets better and better. Each Max Cámara novel is a treat to savour”
“All great cities need a fictional cop, and now Valencia has one of the very best in Jason Webster's dope smoking Chief Inspector Max Cámara. Step into his world of the corrida, corruption, and clouds of saffron and you'll be hooked…”
“An exceptional writer”
