Book Description

When the daughter of a prominent politician and her boyfriend disappear, officials suspect foul play. Seasoned inspector Francisco Bermejo and rookie brainiac Pablo Roncero team up to investigate, but their hope for an open-and-shut case quickly crumbles. They are on the trail of a serial killer—one whose motivations are as mysterious as the horrific, elaborate tableaus he leaves behind as clues. Bermejo and Roncero must overcome their differences, a byzantine bureaucracy, and the distraction of a beautiful journalist as they race across Spain in pursuit of the murderer. They can only guess where he will strike next—and with the gruesome game the killer's playing, guesswork is not nearly good enough.

More About the Author

I was born in Madrid, Spain, on a hot summer's day in 1972. From an early age I always had a love of reading, beginning with children's collections like the Famous Five and The Happy Hollisters, before delving fearlessly into the adventures of Jules Verne, Alexandre Dumas and Emilio Salgari.

I graduated in IT and Telecoms Engineering in my home town and for nearly a decade I worked in the technology sector, until five years ago I decided to turn my career on its head, seeking a profession that would enable me to improve my quality of life and above all make time for my great passion: literature.

I have now published several novels in Spanish, my mother tongue: "El color de la maldad" (Color of Evil, the best-selling crime thriller in Spanish on Amazon.com in 2012 and 2013); "La rebeldía del alma" (The rebellion of the Soul), a daring and original story of suspense, drama and romance with a dash of Noir (this book was global number one on Amazon.es and is now the top romantic suspense novel in Spanish on Amazon.com); "Juego de identidades" (Game of Identities), a fast-paced action-packed adventure thriller across two continents, which has been very well received by critics and readers. And finally, the novel "Caos absoluto" (Absolute Chaos), a dystopian crime thriller with an important social undertone. It is a book with which I aim to entertain, while also making readers reflect on our society and the corruption in politics and the economy.

My book "El enigma de los vencidos" (The Enigma of the Defeated), an adventure and mystery novel with a historical setting, was published digitally and in print by Ediciones B, one of Spain's most prestigious publishers, and is also available in the USA through Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.

I have also published my first non-fiction work, in digital format only. The book is entitled "La llave del éxito. Consigue destacar en Amazon: Marketing para escritores" (The Key to Success. Stand out on Amazon: Marketing for writers), a book that can appeal to all readers, as well as independent writers.

In spring 2014, thanks to the international success of my crime thriller in Spanish, "El color de la maldad", Thomas & Mercer will publish the English version of this book, to be entitled "Color of Evil".

I am also a reader, content manager and freelance consultant on various projects, with a particular focus on Internet marketing and new technologies applied to publishing and culture. I am also a contributor to Getafe Negro, Madrid's crime fiction festival.

********************************************************************

Nací en Madrid, en un caluroso día del verano de 1972. Desde muy pequeño siempre sentí una gran afición por la lectura, dejando a un lado las famosas colecciones de "Los cinco", "Los Hollister" o Barco de Vapor para adentrarme sin miedo en las aventuras de los personajes de Julio Verne, Alejandro Dumas o Emilio Salgari.

Durante los estudios primarios gané un concurso infantil de cuentos en mi colegio, pero nunca imaginé que, veinte años después, la escritura se convirtiera no sólo en mi vocación tardía sino en el medio idóneo para expresarme y desarrollarme como persona. Un soplo de aire fresco que me hizo replantearme seriamente cómo quería vivir mi existencia, ya que escribir todos los días se convirtió en algo más que una simple necesidad.

En mi ciudad natal cursé estudios de Ingeniería Superior de Telecomunicaciones e Informática y aquí sigo viviendo en la actualidad, aunque sea una ciudad que a veces ame y en determinadas ocasiones me saque de quicio. Durante casi una década trabajé en el sector tecnológico hasta que hace cinco años decidí darle un giro radical a mi carrera profesional, buscando un trabajo que me permitiera ganar en calidad de vida y sobre todo en tiempo para dedicarme a mi gran pasión: la literatura.

En la actualidad cuento con las siguientes novelas: "El color de la maldad" (125 semanas consecutivas como thriller policíaco en español más vendido en Amazon.com); "La rebeldía del alma", una arriesgada y original trama que alberga suspense, drama, romance y una pizca de novela negra (esta obra fue número 1 global en Amazon.es y ahora está en el top de las novelas de Suspense Romántico y Romance Contemporáneo en español de Amazon.com); "Juego de identidades", un trepidante thriller de acción y aventuras entre dos continentes que está teniendo muy buena aceptación. Y por último, "Caos absoluto", una novela policial distópica escrita en formato thriller, pero también con un trasfondo social importante. Es una obra con la que pretendo entretener, pero también hacer reflexionar al lector sobre nuestra sociedad y la corrupción en los ámbitos político y económico. Estas cuatro novelas están publicadas sólo en digital a través de Amazon.

Después cuento también con "El enigma de los vencidos", una novela de aventuras y misterio con trasfondo histórico, que ha sido publicada en digital y en papel por Ediciones B, una de las más prestigiosas editoriales españolas, encontrándose también en USA a través del catálogo de Amazon.com o Barnes & Noble.

Además he publicado, sólo en formato digital, mi primera obra de No Ficción. Se trata de "La llave del éxito (Consigue destacar en Amazon: Marketing para escritores)", un libro que puede interesar a todo tipo de lectores, incluyendo también a los escritores independientes.

Participo habitualmente en diversos medios digitales escribiendo reseñas, entrevistas y crónicas de eventos literarios con una gran aceptación. Además, sigo con mi blog "Aventuras y desventuras de un escritor novel", bitácora exitosa en Internet que lleva ya casi cinco años activa.

Soy además lector editorial, gestor de contenidos y consultor freelance en diversos proyectos, con especial atención al marketing online y las nuevas tecnologías aplicados a temas editoriales y/o culturales. También soy colaborador de Getafe Negro, el festival de novela policíaca de Madrid.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint hearted 18 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you enjoy a good detective thriller, thus is for you. Two police officers work together to try and find a sadistic killer who believes he will meet his master after carrying out particularly gruesome murders.
The book doesn't slow down at all and completely holds your attention through to the end.
Would strongly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bloodthirsty villain 9 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book! I thought it was going to be a bit boring until suddenly the perspective changed to the killer who is a complete psychopath! (Seriously, Hannibal Lector is a sissy compared to this guy!). This ploy continues through the book, the point of view changing from character to character, and this really helped to keep me hooked. The fabulous Spanish locations were also really interesting and made a nice change. The novel is a translation from Spanish but the English flows naturally, I didn't really notice it was a translation at all. Just one warning: this book is definitely not for the faint-hearted - the killings are seriously twisted. I was left feeling quite disturbed at times, for me that's part of the fun, but it might not be for you.
All in all I'd recommend it if you want an easy read, something with lots of action, not too much boring description, some really tense moments and a very scary killer. Just be warned, it's brutal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good crime novel 11 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have read the Spanish version of this book two years ago.
It is a book you can't stop reading. Rythme, surprises, interest, good scenes...
A novel with great characters: A serial killer we can really know because we always know why he commits his crimes, two police very different who make a spectacular couple...
"Color of evil" is, realley, a very good crime novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Self-paced thriller 14 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I read the original version in Spanish and was impressed. After a stunning cover, the book grabs you on a sequence of police investigations, pursuits, travel, love, violence, and muchmore ... I loved this story and enjoyed reading it!!

The novel has a rate that increases while the plot progresses. In my opinion, it would be a fabulous story to adapt to the movies or televisión. I'd love to see a film about 'Color of evil'!

Do not hesitate more and discover the adventures of Jason, a very peculiar killer racing across rural places from Spain

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing 6 Aug. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Liked it. Smart and original plot. Great background story on the killer's past. Smoothly written/translated. One of those books that manages to be good fun but also very dark. The fantastic Spanish settings could have been more richly evoked, in my opinion, and some of the dialogue was a bit repetitive, but that didn't take anything away from it - was still a gripping read. The killer was so good I almost wanted him to succeed. Would definitely read more of Bermejo and Roncero's adventures.
