A Death in Valencia: (Max Cámara 2)
In the thrilling follow up to Or the Bull Kills You, Detective Max Cámara must investigate the murder of a renowned paella chef and threats against a local abortion clinic in a brilliantly atmospheric Spanish setting
Detective Max Cámara is under pressure.
A renowned paella chef has been found dead; the town hall are set on demolishing El Cabanyal, the colourful fisherman's quarter on Valencia's sea-front; an abortionist has been kidnapped and with the Pope due to visit the city, the police are summoned to offer protection from crowds of the faithful and the danger of anti-religionists alike.
When one of Cámara's long term adversaries is put in charge of the missing abortionist case, tensions are quickly running high, and with ominous cracks spreading across the walls of his flat, Cámara soon has nowhere to turn.
