9780099565970: The Anarchist Detective (Max Cámara)

Sent on leave after his last, brutal, case, Max Cámara returns to his home town in La Mancha, famous for producing the finest saffron in the world. There, the past keeps pulling at him. The town is exhuming a mass grave from the Civil War, but why is his grandfather behaving so strangely? His old friend Yago is investigating a particularly nasty murder which sets off memories Max has been trying to bury for years. And then there are Yago’s whisperings about a saffron mafia. Max finds himself plunged into the thick of a complex and intensely personal case that will put him in severe danger and have him questioning his past—and his future in the police.

About the Author:

Jason Webster has lived for several years in Valencia, the setting of his Cámara novels. His acclaimed non-fiction books about Spain include Duende: A Journey in Search of Flamenco and Sacred Sierra: A Year on a Spanish Mountain. His first Cámara crime novel, Or the Bull Kills You, was longlisted for the CWA Specsavers Crime Thriller Awards New Blood Dagger and was followed by A Death in Valencia.

Review:

"Each Max Camara novel is a treat to savour." —Mark Billingham, author, The Dying Hours

"A superbly balanced novel, it conveys a wonderful sense of Spain . . . [Webster] does for the country what Michael Dibdin did for Italy – pure joy from first page to last." —Geoffrey Wansell, Daily Mail

"A gripping, intriguing thriller that beautifully evokes non-tourist Spain." —Sun

"If you’re tiring of the frigid climate of Scandinavian crime fiction, a welcome antidote may be found in Jason Webster’s sultry (and elegantly written) Max Cámara series set in Spain. This third entry is the most accomplished yet." —Barry Forshaw, Financial Times

"Neatly and inexorably Webster links murder, present and past . . . Dialogue is stark." —Gwen Moffat, Shots Mag
