The Good Suicides by Antonio Hill
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is the second outing for volatile Inspector Hector Salgado of the Barcelona Police Force, introduced to us in The Summer of Dead Toys. It’s a character-driven tale as it delves into the personalities of all concerned. Slow to unfold, you get carried along through many twists and turns to an ending that manages to be both expected and surprising! It revolves round a weekend of company executives ‘team building’ in a remote house where something unexpected obviously occurred. Running parallel to that is the continuing case of the disappearance of Hector’s wife, unresolved so no doubt carrying on into the next book.

If you like Antonio Hill you might also like to read books by Andrea Camilleri, Donna Leon and Jason Webster.

Synopsis

The Good Suicides by Antonio Hill

Young, Free and...Dead Senior staff at Alemany Cosmetics come home with a secret after a team-building course in a remote country house. Now they are committing suicide, one by one. Soon, they may all be dead. Each has received a photo from an anonymous sender showing dogs hanging dead from a tree near the farm. Deciphering the personalities of these youthful executives and their power structures, Inspector Salgado has his own ways of making them speak. But Barcelona is hunkering down for an unusually cold spell. Can Salgado break the ice before it's too late?
