A Body in Barcelona Max Camara 5

by Jason Webster

A Body in Barcelona Max Camara 5 Synopsis

Tensions in Spain are rising: political violence and social unrest have suddenly re-emerged. Madrid is trying to keep a tight leash on Catalonia, where the call for independence is getting louder by the day. The last time Barcelona moved to break away, in the 1930s, Spain quickly descended into civil war. Down in Valencia, a shallow grave is found among abandoned orange groves just outside the city. Chief Inspector Max Camara, now heading up the new Special Crime Unit, is put on the case. But this is no ordinary murder. Behind it, Max uncovers a tangled web that could awaken ghosts from the past, decimate Barcelona and destabilise the whole country. It's all down to Max, but the stakes are higher than anything he's ever known. One of the most creative writers working within the field of crime fiction, and one of the most entertaining. (Barry Forshaw, Daily Express). A series that gets better and better. (Mark Billingham). Conveys a wonderful sense of Spain...[Webster] does for the country what Michael Dibdin did for Italy. (Daily Mail). An exceptional writer. (Guardian).
