About the book

Synopsis

Sent on leave after his last, brutal, case, Max Cámara returns to his home town in La Mancha, famous for producing the finest saffron in the world.

There, the past keeps pulling at him. The town is exhuming a mass grave from the Civil War, but why is his grandfather behaving so strangely? His old friend Yago is investigating a particularly nasty murder which sets off memories Max has been trying to bury for years. And then there are Yago’s whisperings about a saffron mafia...

Max finds himself plunged into the thick of a complex and intensely personal case that will put him in severe danger and have him questioning his past – and his future in the police.

What the critics say

A superbly balanced novel, it conveys a wonderful sense of Spain... [Webster] does for the country what Michael Dibdin did for Italy -- pure joy from first page to last
- Daily Mail

A gripping, intriguing thriller that beautifully evokes non-tourist Spain
- Sun

If you’re tiring of the frigid climate of Scandinavian crime fiction, a welcome antidote may be found in Jason Webster’s sultry (and elegantly written) Max Cámara series set in Spain. This third entry is the most accomplished yet
- Financial Times

Neatly and inexorably Webster links murder, present and past... Dialogue is stark
- Shots Mag
