About the book


Detective Max Cámara 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 Cámara'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, Cámara soon has nowhere to turn.

What the critics say

Camara is a lively edition to Mediterranean coppery
- 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
- Independent
