A Death in Valencia

A Mystery
Jason Webster

Chief Inspector Max Camara probes the murder of a popular paella chef in Webster's richly atmospheric follow-up to Or the Bull Kills You (2011). Camara already has his hands full dealing with the pope's upcoming visit when Pep Roures's body is pulled from the sea. Did a rivalry among the city's top chefs lead to Roures's untimely demise? Or is there something even more sinister at work? The city of Valencia, Spain serves as a perfect backdrop to this tightly plotted and thoroughly engaging mystery.
