This is a well-written novel with good characters and a fresh perspective. This is great read by Gimenez-Bartlett, about a tough Spanish detective in Barcelona and her food-loving partner, investigating a mystery revolving around dogs.
Alicia Giménez Bartlett was born in Almansa, Spain, in 1951 and has lived in Barcelona since 1975. After the enormous success of her first novels, she decided to leave her work as a teacher of Spanish literature, and to dedicate herself full-time to writing. In 1997, she was awarded the Feminino Lumen prize for the best female writer in Spain.
She subsequently launched her Petra Delicado series, quickly making her into one of Spain’s most popular and beloved crime writers.
