'Evokes the master of Barcelona-set narrative, Carlos Ruiz Zafon' Independent

When the death of a young witness in a case of human trafficking and voodoo provokes the normally calm Inspector Salgado to beat someone up, he is swiftly removed from the project. Instead, he is sent to investigate a teenager's fall to his death in one of Barcelona's uptown areas.
As Salgado begins to uncover the inconvenient truths behind the city's most powerful families, two seemingly unsolvable cases are set to implode under the hot Barcelona sun.

Review:

"A welcome corrective to snow-blindness from too much Nordic noir... excellent characterisation, a sympathetic and engaging protagonist and plenty of plot twists with a cliff hanger ending that sets things up nicely for the next in the series" (Guardian)

"Entertaining debut" (Marcel Berlins Times)

"Evokes the master of Barcelona-set narrative, Carlos Ruiz Zafon... For all his storytelling skills, Hill’s real achievement is in the creation of an idiosyncratic new character, Salgado... a series to watch" (Barry Forshaw Independent)

"A blast of hot air through the current frozen Nordic crime-writing landscape" (Book of the Week Weekend Sport)

"Human trafficking, voodoo, the corruption of wealth and power, and sharp psychological insight. Don't miss" (Literary Review)

Book Description:

International crime fiction from Spain set over a stifling summer in Barcelona, introducing Inspector Hector Salgado. For fans of Jo Nesbo
