(Inspector Velázquez Mysteries Book 1)

Inspector Velázquez finds himself at odds with his superiors after failing to solve his previous three investigations. The pressure is mounting on him to make an arrest after a gay vet is murdered in the most horrific fashion.

Velázquez’s boss and the local media are agreed that the victim’s jilted lover is responsible for the crime.

But Velázquez refuses to give in to the lynch-mob mentality, which he considers to be a hangover from the bad old days of General Franco’s dictatorship.

When he discovers a link that opens a window into the victim’s dark past as a concentration camp guard during World War Two, Velázquez realizes there may be more to this case than many people are willing to countenance.

Meanwhile, Velázquez has received a series of death threats that culminate in the killer making attempts on the Inspector’s life, as well as that of his wife, Pe.

Velázquez knows that he needs to catch his quarry before he becomes the murderer’s next victim.
