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 Cmara roars in on his motorbike. Cmara 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, Cmara 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. This dazzling new Cmara novel - constantly surprising, full of vivid characters - exposes the dark underside of todays Spain. A powerful, gripping page-turner, it confirms Max Cmara as the detective to watch, feeling the pulse of the moment.
