Sub-inspector Max Romero is asked to help investigate the death of Leila, a beautiful Muslim postgraduate student, researching the impacts of the Spanish Civil War on Max's home village in the Sierra Nevada. The prime suspect, Hassan, has links to a supposed terrorist group but the police's insensitive handling of the case leads to his tragic suicide. As a result, Max gets co-opted into the anti-terrorist operation based in Granada, which is destined to go terribly wrong.

Meanwhile, Max's fascinating family, headed by his charismatic grandmother Paula, loom large in the gathering events, while shadows from the Spanish Civil War crowd in to influence the present.

The story moves from the ancient cobbled streets of Granada to the sultry mountains of the Sierra Nevada. Over it all hovers the mesmerising but tragic beauty of the city of Granada.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A vivid novel that doesn't shy away from police brutality or the ruthlessness of Islamic terrorism. * Sunday Times *
A compelling and well-paced mystery, smoothly weaving in historical and cultural background and creating, in the young Max, a refreshing new face in international crime fiction. * Booklist *
The first book in a new series by a husband and wife team...Blood Wedding's sharp political sense is matched by interesting characters, a fresh setting and a good mystery. -- Mat Coward * Morning Star *
...you will find Max agreeable company, and the novel is very well plotted and good humoured. * Daily Telegraph *
