The dark heart of Barcelona
A man is found dead on a park bench in Ciudadella, Barcelona. No evidence on it can identify him. The clues in the hands of the inspector Petra Delikado and her faithful assistant Fermin Garthon "show" the skinhead gangs: An eyewitness saw them mercilessly beating the victim. The medical court, however, disagrees: No beating; the victim has a bullet wound. And this is the beginning of the mystery ...
Spain's most famous inspector, Petra Delicado, in a different book, an anxious tour of the dark world of the unemployed, the homeless and the undocumented immigrants, guides us to a world where nothing is as it seems, and fear finds its way pierce the heart.
There is nothing more satisfying for a fan of noir literature than discovering a new starring duo of cops with amazing chemistry. Alicia Gimenez Bartlett offers exactly this satisfaction in her book.
