Detective Max Camara is under pressure. A renowned paella chef has been found dead; the town hall are set on demolishing El Cabanyal, the colourful fisherman's quarter on Valencia's sea-front; an abortionist has been kidnapped and with the Pope due to visit the city, the police are summoned to offer protection from crowds of the faithful and the danger of anti-religionists alike. When one of Camara's long term adversaries is put in charge of the missing abortionist case, tensions are quickly running high, and with ominous cracks spreading across the walls of his flat, Camara soon has nowhere to turn.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Jason Webster has made Valencia his own... This is Chief Inspector Max Camara's second outing, and his colourful personality is every bit a match for the vibrant but often trouble home of paella he has to keep safe" -- Henry Sutton * Daily Mirror *
"Camara is a lively edition to Mediterranean coppery" -- Marcel Berlins * The Times *
"Our favourite Spanish, flamenco-loving, brandy-drinking inspector (and there are a few) is back" * Sport Magazine *
"Camara is the opposite of the conventional `foodie' detective from Mediterranean fiction... [Camara's] perceptions of what is wrong with Spanish society form an original background to a complex thriller" -- Jane Jakeman * Independent *
"This second novel featuring resourceful protagonist Max Camara is quite the equal of its atmospheric predecessor Or the Bull Kills You" * Good Book Guide *

“Buying the first”

I liked this book. I admit to finding Spain fascinating, and this book has quite a lot of Spain in it, and especially its cuisine.
