  • Book

In this 1997 Spanish best-seller, Barcelona detective Petra Delicado and her gruff partner delve into the slummy underworld of dog smuggling.

Local Color
Delicado on a seedy local bar: ”It was as exotic as a baroque church…its stained glass windows painted with yellow designs for shellfish and paellas.”

Quirkiest Character
A small, mangy mutt called Freaky.

Lowdown
Delightful, deeply human characters and keen insight into the vagaries of police work only sweeten this rich paean to all things canine.
