A Spanish Salvo?
The Rap Sheet has really been on fire this past couple of weeks, sending good reading ideas into my inbox on a regular basis. The "flamenco-loving, brandy-tippling"description of Chief Inspector Max Cámara, of the Spanish Policia Nacional, along with the apparently complex web of nefarious activity he's investigating, makes me wonder if he could be the Spanish Salvo Montalbano? I can't imagine that anyone could dethrone Salvo, but it may be worth leaving Italy to find out. Apparently Jason Webster's second book in this series, A Death in Valencia, also involves the murder of a prominent paella chef named Pepe. That's alloteration!
