Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A superlative police procedural."-The Washington Post

A detested television journalist specializing in muckraking has been murdered. Inspector Petra Delicado and her sentimental sidekick Garzn are thrown into the ruthless world of show business, high society, and belligerent celebrities, where public and private lives meet in an explosive and deadly mix. In this new installment in the Petra Delicado series, Alicia Gimnez-Bartlett proves once more why she was recently named best female writer in Spain, and gives further evidence for the success of this series both in her native country and abroad.

Review:

"At the start of Gimnez-Bartlett's gripping second police procedural to star Barcelona inspector Petra Delicado (after Dog Day), Delicado and her perennial sidekick, Sgt. Fermin Garzn, are thrown into a high-profile case — the murder inquiry into a much reviled gossip columnist, Ernestos Valds — after the investigators originally assigned to it are pulled off to tackle a politically more sensitive assignment. Valds did not lack for enemies, ranging from his ex-wife to the countless celebrities and politicians who had been excoriated in his column. When more murder victims turn up, Delicado suspects a connection with the politically more sensitive case. Engagingly human, the quirky Delicado has the sort of complex personality one associates with more familiar male sleuths such as Morse and Peter Diamond. Though the whodunit aspect proves less than compelling, readers who like their mysteries to provide a window into another society should be pleased. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
