The Anarchist Detective Reviews


"Each Max Camara novel is a treat to savour" -- Mark Billingham
"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" -- Geoffrey Wansell * 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 Camara series set in Spain. This third entry is the most accomplished yet" -- Barry Forshaw * Financial Times *
"Neatly and inexorably Webster links murder, present and past... Dialogue is stark" -- Gwen Moffat * Shots Mag *
