Costa del crime provides an insight to what goes on out there. Not what I expected, but interesting. I'm a great fan of Wensley Clarkson, currently reading gang wars on the costa, by same author.

I do not know Spain much from personal experience, having only ever visited Zaragoza (for a week) and San Sebastian (for a day or so) and then decades ago. I do not know holiday-beach Spain at all. so it was that I read this book with increasing distaste as I realized how trashed a lot of its southern coast has evidently become. The book seems to have been well-researched by the author in person and reads like snatches from some newspaper such as The News of the World. As with all such books, one must take it a bit with a pinch of salt. Benalmadena, which my mother-in-law visited some years ago and thought lovely, is described in a way that might mirror a description of inner-city UK in the sun. I suppose a lot of life really is in the eye of the beholder. Many of the denizens of the Costa del Sol seem ghastly, but of course they must be , one would hope, the minority, though I do know some people who would never return even to Puerto Banus, one of the more expensive places, because of the dark-glass jeeps and shaven-heads.

Not bad as a read, though the author would have done better to keep to crime proper and not waste over half the book on sex tourism and (a brief ending coda) "celebrities" --two of them only...-- who have taken the incomprehensible decision to reside on this coast.

Great read with interesting facts of some of the unnamed top villains who have fled to the Costa del Crime. Been better if they had been identified but not possible.

interesting for the period it took place in, personally I prefer more updated events of what is happening in recent years, rather than 10+ years ago,
