Blood Med by Jason Webster
  

Lovereading view...

The fourth Spanish-based detective novel starring Max Cámara. These are steeped in Spanish history but this one concentrating on the present recession. There is a murder and a suicide and two detectives, Max and Torres, each fearing for their jobs, are allocated one case each. There seems to be a link and the friends work well together to prove such. This is a frightening portrait of a corrupt and suffering Valencia, a terrible picture of what could so easily happen in Spain. It certainly illustrates a side the tourists never see. ~ Sarah Broadhurst

Synopsis

Blood Med by Jason Webster

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 Camara roars in on his motorbike...Camara is back in Valencia and 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 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.
