Blood Med (Max Camara 4) Synopsis

Spain is corrupt and crumbling. 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 Camara roars on his motorbike straight into the heart of trouble. Camara 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, Camara or his friend Torres? The two men are flung into action on seemingly separate cases, the suicide of an ex bank-clerk and the brutal murder of a young American woman. Around them the city is erupting into demonstrations and near riots. This dazzling new Camara novel - constantly surprising, full of vivid characters - exposes the dark underside of today's Spain. A powerful, gripping page-turner, it confirms Max Camara as the detective to watch, feeling the pulse of the moment. A series that just gets better and better. Each Max Camara novel is a treat to savour . (Mark Billingham). Conveys a wonderful sense of Spain...[ Webster] does for the country what Michael Dibdin did for Italy . (Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail). All great cities need a fictional cop, and now Valencia has one of the very best in Jason Webster's dope smoking Chief Inspector Max Camara. Step into his world of the corrida, corruption, and clouds of saffron and you'll be hooked. But if he offers you a roll-up . (Quintin Jardine).
