"Either you kill the bull, or the bull kills you." Chief Inspector Max Câamara thinks in proverbs, and he hates one thing above all: bullfighting. One hot afternoon in Valencia, however, he has to stand in for his boss judging a festival corrida starringSpain's most famous young matador. That night, he is back in the bullring, and what he finds on the blood-stained sand shocks the city of Valencia to its core. To top it all, Fallas, the loudest fiesta in the country, has just got underway. For Câamara, it seems his problems have only just begun . . .

Review:

"Sexual politics, male identity, clan loyalties, and the experience and lore of bullfighting: the novel is full of interesting material" (TLS)

"An American author, brought up in England, writes about bullfighting in Spain. Festive Valencia is his chosen city and the murder of a charismatic matador the centre of the plot. Jason Webster is pretty ambiguous about the morals of the fight, but knows his stuff" (Country Life)

"One of the most attractive figures to enter recent detective fiction ... Like the best detective stories, this book becomes a scrutiny of our most powerful drives and secrets" (The Independent)

"The first in a projected series, which is very good news indeed ... nifty plotting, great descriptions and the most enchanting new detective I've come across in a good while." (The Guardian)

"Webster has completely nailed Chief Inspector Max Camara, while vividly bringing to life Valencia." (Daily Mirror)

Book Description:

Gripping, hot-blooded detective fiction with authentic Spanish setting - first in a series.
