Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this hardboiled fiction for dog lovers and lovers of dog mysteries, detective Petra Delicado and her maladroit sidekick, Garzon, investigate the murder of a tramp whose only friend is a mongrel dog named Fright. One murder leads to another and Delicado finds herself involved in the sordid, dangerous world of fight dogs. Dog Day is first-rate entertainment.

Review:

"American readers will welcome Gimnez-Bartlett's detective duo of Insp. Petra Delicado and Sgt. Fermn Garzn in this sharply honed tale of dog trafficking in Barcelona. Delicado and Garzn investigate the near-fatal beating of a derelict whose sole possession seems to be a peculiar-looking dog. As the partners piece together the last few days of the victim's life, they learn his name, Lucena, and that he sold dogs to local universities and pharmaceutical companies for experiments. When a huge stash of cash turns up in Lucena's barren apartment, the detectives know their man was caught up in something far more lucrative than selling dogs for research. Both the case and the personal lives of Delicado and Garzn become more complicated, as the inspector gets involved with a local veterinarian and Garzn finds himself in a love triangle with a bookstore owner and dog trainer. Gimnez-Bartlett, who in 1997 won the Feminino Lumen prize for the best female writer in Spain, has produced a dark, distinctive and surprisingly funny novel sure to appeal not just to dog lovers. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
