Book Description

10 May 2008
"Sergeant Gonzalez, the son of his father?" is a rib-tickling novel that looks at the Guardia Civil (one of Spain's three police forces) located inland from the Costa Blanca. The good-looking, roguish, easy-going Sergeant Paco Gonzalez enjoys red wine, food, football and women. Life is good, especially with his fun-loving girlfriend Maria but. marriage? Gonzalez's job is a highway patrolman informing motorists of impending speeding fines. But he and his gay partner Fernandez are soon transferred to crime detection by their boss, the tough fearsome Captain Alonzo. Read about speeding fines, Germans, a fiesta, a robbery at a nudist club, the murder of the mysterious John Smith, the lowdown on Benidorm and Marbella, fraud at the local radio station, visiting Morocco and Vegas, growing your own cannabis, buying a ruin and even running a half marathon. Gonzalez is no grumpy Rebus, no scalpel-wielding Coldwell, no complex Christie. He is a new, humorous, refreshing character. Not for Gonzalez the use of fingerprints and DNA. More a study of fast cars, cocktails and beds.

As a regular visitor to the Costa Blanca, and having read Harry King's books on purchasing property in Spain, I was looking forward to reading his tongue in cheek goings-on of the Guardia Civil.
It didn't disappoint.
I don't know how much is based on personal experience - quite a lot judging by the amount of detail in the book!
It is perfect holiday reading and should be a must for every rental villa and apartment on the Costas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sergeant Gonzales 20 Jun 2012
This book was a really good read, providing a humorous insight into life beyond the beaches of the Costas. Sergeant Gonzales and his girlfriend (Maria)are totally endearing characters. The story is slick, pacey and very, very funny.
