About the Author:

Manuel Vázquez Montalbán was born in Barcelona in 1939. He was a journalist, novelist and creator of Pepe Carvalho, a fast-living, gourmet private detective. Montalbán won both the Raymond Chandler Prize and the French Grand Prix of Detective Fiction for his thrillers, which are translated into all major languages. He died in October 2003.

Review:

Montalban has a sharp wit and a knowing eye. * Sunday Times * He is the modern committed writer, entertaining his readers as he reveals what lies beneath Barcelona's glittering carpet. * Guardian * As ever, with Montalban, the joy isn't so much in the crime as in the getting there with the nihilistic, food-loving Carvalho proving a wonderful guide to Barcelona's seedier side. * The Observer *
