Set amid the aromatic sea and forest of Vigo, Spain, this captivating thriller opens with the discovery of a young saxophonist found murdered in his posh, beachside apartment. An unusually cruel murder, the body is found tied by the wrists to the bed's headboard, with two glasses of whiskey nearby, and bearing hideous burns across its midsection. The disheartened police inspector assigned to the mysterious case, Leo Caldas, stealthily moves his investigation between the inviting jazz clubs and the affected atmosphere of the upper crust, all whilst on the look out for a more headily desired object-a sense of meaning and purpose in his life.

Domingo Villar lives in Madrid. He is a radio food critic, and has also written scripts for film and television.Review:
"'A piece of hard-boiled crime fiction. In luminous prose Villar lets the Mediterranean space speak, setting his story in Galicia among the "fjord-like inlets known as rias... swaths of green land here and there... shielded from the pounding of the Atlantic by streamlined, white-sand islands'" TLS"
