As expected this latest offering is excellent and keeps you 'hooked' to follow the fast moving story. The characters follow through from the previous books. The book is based around the Valencia region of Spain and includes interesting facts of how Spain in evolving in the modern day, whilst keeping a footing in the deep history of the region.

May I suggest to the author that it may be interested to consider writing Hilario's (the detective's grandfather's) story. The grandfather features greatly, in all of the detectives books and his outlook on life has deeply influenced Max Camara, in his unconventional policing.

I would strongly recommend this book.

Yet another brilliantly written instalment in the Max Camara series! Jason Webster evokes Valencia and the current social problems in Spain very well, and his unconventional police Inspector adds to this mix. Camara is in my opinion one of the best detectives in fiction at the moment. I discovered these novels last year and have since purchased and read them all (along with Mr Webster's non-fiction titles) and have found them, as an hispanophile, a delight and would (and have) strongly recommend them!

The only downside is the fact that there isn't another Max Camara novel out for another year, please Mr Webster write faster!

There was much that we enjoyed about the fourth Max Camara murder mystery - the writing, always good, sometimes intensely vivid; the development of characters from previous books, not least that of Max Camara; the personalising of the consequences of Spain's financial crisis. I can't, however, say this was the best story I ever read, and I think my husband, to whom I read it aloud, would agree. There were long digressions where politics came to the fore and the story retreated into the background. We were left with a very strong impression of the physical appearance of the corpse of Amy, the murdered American girl, of her flat, and of her postmortem; but we found out very little about her life; and the motive for her killing became evident early on in the book.

We might have found ourselves more involved if we had a sense of people, other than Camara and his lover Alicia, being in danger. What happened to Alicia was shocking (I'm not going to reveal whether she survived her ordeal, or not). Camara, now the owner and daring rider of a motorbike is, of course, invincible. It is impossible to take his danger seriously. Whenever he is in imminent danger of losing his life, a miraculous rescue is inevitable. Camara Five has, after all, been scheduled for publication next year.

Format: Hardcover
Knowing Valencia reasonably well, I've enjoyed the local setting for this series. The novels link well and there's excellent development of Max and the main characters in his life.

For this novel it's a bit unfortunate for the author that pretty much in the week this came out the King abdicated and most people shrugged,carried on and bothered more about their team's abject showing in the World Cup. So the idea of a dying King adding to the country's woes falls a bit flat. But there's still a great sense of the social issues caused by the economic problems of recent years which may not yet have manifested themselves fully in Spain's daily life.

The backdrop of rising unrest and the potential rise of the Right makes a great read and for the most part is highly plausible drawing as it does on Spain's history as well as its present and its potential future. Did wonder about the Maldonado character's Schadenfreude at Camara's difficulties - found that less plausible. The Amy character might have been worth a chapter or two of back story. But these are minor gripes as the tale develops at pace and each new angle adds to it. You learn quite a lot about Spain too along the way in an informative and entertaining way that never lectures.

Four books in and still going strong - let's hope there are more instalments on the way.

I've read all the novels. They expand every time. This last one(hopefully not the last) is the best. Riveting. Great.
