This book deserves a thought out review than I am going to give it, but I am trying to clear my desk before going away.This is a great police procedural set in Spain There is the token grumpy Inspector with a dark past and personal issues, but he is likeable than most The plucky female junior partner was also given depth than usual.The crimes were nicely but not overly convoluted And I didn t see the whodunnit coming The setting of a lovely, steamy, summer Barcelona was great With cocktails in a summer evening, or running along the beachfront very much drawing you into the place Spain seems like a perfect place for a police procedural series to be set too, with the mix of continents coming together.I was pleasantly surprised, particularly with the end, and I will be hunting down the second. Vara juc riilor moarte este un roman captivant, de i u urel Nu l a considera un thriller pur, pentru c ritmul nu este unul specific, ci lent, n ciuda faptului c ntreaga ac iune se desf oar pe parcursul a 5 zile Eu l consider o treime thriller i dou treimi dram Drama unor copii neglija i i chiar abandona i de p rin i, a unor tineri care apuc pe c i gre ite pentru c nu au pe cineva care s i ndrume, a unor adul i care se pierd pe drum i uit ce este cu adev rat important i, nu n ultimul r nd, este drama unor poli i ti i fac datoria cu d ruire i n eleg c t de sub ire este linia dintre lege i dreptate Recenzia aici Credincio ii au un avantaj fa de noi, au pe cineva n care s se ncread , cineva care i protejeaz sau i consoleaz O putere superioar , care le rezolv ndoielile i le dicteaz comportamentul n schimb, noi nu avem dec t demoni de care s ne temem. This was a 3.5 read for me.Excellent characterizations and plenty of plot twists wrapped in a dark timbre makes for a satisfying and entertaining read This book introduces us to Inspector Hector Salgado, a Barcelona police homicide detective, who has just returned from visiting his native Argentina, as he is on forced leave due to beating up a sex trafficker ring leader who denied culpability in the death of a young Nigerian girl Because of his violent actions, Hector is taken off this case while his former partner Sgt Martina Andreu continues the investigation and stealthy keeps him updated Now assigned to an open and shut case of a wealthy young man who fell to death from his balcony, Hector and his new partner Leire Castro are told to quickly wrap it up without a lot of fanfare As Hector, Martina and Leire begin to peel back the fa ade of the public faces of those connected to the two cases, there is a private world of deceit, betrayals and secrets held close to the chest and makes for intriguing plot twists What I enjoyed most is while this very able police team gets to the truth of the crimes, is we are also learning about their compelling back stories and their own personal dilemmas and demons The cases are satisfactorily wrapped up and the author has adequately tantalized me to be invested in knowing how the personal issues will be resolved And I must say that the last chapter is a pure teaser setting me up for the next book in the series.The Summer of Dead Toys by Antonio Hill is a gripping murder with compelling characters set in sultry Barcelona Recommend to mystery readers looking for a noirish style series.This book was provided by Blogging For Books in exchange for a fair and honest view. This well written, engaging mystery is set in Barcelona It features Inspector Salgado, an Argentine, struggling to solve a death that at first appears to be a suicide Other characters, and mysteries, are set in motion, and a meta mystery is not solved in this book The second in the series, The Good Suicides, is also excellent I look forward to the third. 3.5 It s a hot, steamy summer in Barcelona and when Inspector Hector Salgado returns to his job after enforced leave, the Super wants to ease him back into work by assigning him an unofficial investigation Salgado is to look into the circumstances surrounding the death of a young man, to put his estranged mother s mind to rest Further, it is the first time he is to work with hotshot new Agent, Leire Castro, who has joined his team while he was away Meanwhile, complications arise from the case that had originally led to Salgado s recent absence.This thriller has it all a great location, complex and likeable characters and a tight, well paced plot with plenty of unexpected twists and turns I ve just rated it down a little because some of the resolution seemed to occur behind the scenes and I prefer to have a frontrow seat.I think 2 is also available in English, and I look forward to seeing what Inspector Salgado gets up to next. ,.4,5 , 50 60 ,.
