Book Two in the Petra Delicado series

Alicia Gimenez-Bartlett's lively style and rigorously exact descriptions of police procedure have won her numerous awards and made her Spain's best-loved mystery writer.

In this best-loved volume of the Petra Delicado series, hard-nosed Inspector Petra Delicado and her sentimental sidekick, Fermin Garzn, begin an investigation into big-money dog smuggling with only a few, strange elements: a mongrel dog named Freaky, the corpse of a man with a seemingly endless list of aliases, and a handful of tips from an anonymous woman caller. Their best leads come from the least likely sources: a ruggedly handsome vet; a blonde bombshell who trains guard dogs; an eccentric university professor; and a haughty dog groomer.

At times, these two world-wise detectives are at a loss, but Delicado and Garzn are not the sort of cops that rely on hunches. They methodically pursue their investigation, drawing the reader into a complex and sordid story. Dog Day is set in a Barcelona that few visitors to the city will ever see, a Barcelona that lurks beneath the surface of one of Europe's most dazzling cities. A broken heart, a new monstrosity, and another dead body accompany every step through this demimonde. Though passions and profits may turn men into beasts and animals into victims, Delicado and Garzn will stop at nothing to get to the root of these twisted and perplexing crimes.

Review:

"Alicia Gimenez-Bartlett won the Femenino Lumen prize as best female writer in Spain, and Dog Day, the first book in her ongoing series about Bercelona police Inspector Petra Delicado and her partner Sgt. Fermin Garzon, shows why. Delicado is tough, funny and sexy; Garzon is softer and more sentimental, but as stalwart as a large tree when things get rough."
--Dick Adler, The Chicago Tribune

"Barcelona police Inspector Petra Delicado and paunchy, fifty-something Sgt. Fermin Garzon prove to be one of the more engaging sleuth teams to debut in a long time."
--Rosemary Herbert, The Washington Post

"Is there anything quite as satisfying to the mystery lover as discovering a pair of made-for-each-other police partners in a new book? Alicia Gimenez-Bartlett gives us...cause for appreciation."
--Marietta Dunn, The Philadelphia Inquirer

"American readers will welcome Gimenez-Bartlett's detective duo of Insp. Petra Delicado and Sgt. Fermin Garzon in this sharply honed tale of dog trafficking in Barcelona...a dark, distinctive and surprisingly funny novel."
--Publishers Weekly

"In Caistor's fluent translation, veteran Gimenez-Bartlett reveals all the casual brutality of her world and its surprising capacity for compassion."
--Kirkus Reviews
