Format: Paperback
A slim book combining sleazy gangsters, the Witness Protection Scheme and the lovely White Isle of Ibiza.

Craig is working as a driver and car mechanic for Sam Albright, a gangster in Northern England. Craig, however, is picked up by the police and agrees to testify against his employer in a trial that the police are putting together to send Sam down for several years. The book opens with Craig, now living incognito and rather unhappily with his girlfriend in Peterborough, as he plans a holiday to Ibiza. He gets word, however, that Sam – from his prison cell – has put a price on his head. So, with this alarming knowledge buzzing around his consciousness, he and his girlfriend set off for their weeklong holiday. On the island they settle into their hotel at Es Cana.

Meanwhile, the second story which intertwines with the first, features Ana from Hungary, who is on a quest. Her Mother has revealed on her deathbed, some of her own personal history and identified a, now, 71 year old man, who played a significant and hugely detrimental part in the lives of many, including that of her Mother. He is apparently living on the island and it is because of him that Ana has come to the White Isle. She is determined to find him and goes to significant lengths by trawling the public records, identifying foreigners who have settled on the island. She has drawn up a list of possible contenders, and drives around the island visiting each and every one to find her quarry. In order to sustain herself, Ana not only works as a hostess on a pleasure boat ploughing to and from Formentera, but she also works the evening shift at the bar in the hotel where Craig is staying. And that is how they meet….

This is a very good read, it grabs you from the off, and weaves two separate stories into one, bringing together two unlikely partners. I liked both characters and wanted to know how it panned out. Having visited the "White Island" for over 40 years, it rang true to me, from the fortress villas, the hills, the beaches, and the tourists. Living in the North of England, the background story was also real. There was interesting and amusing people observations that made the characters, especially Ana, a well rounded person. I recommend this book as a good holiday read, you will be surprised and satisfied at the end and know a little bit more about Ibiza as a place with intrigue beyond the night clubs.

I first see this book at Gatwick airport. This said on the front cover to be a stylish period-thriller. My cover was very stylish with a woman sun bathing by a pool just the same as this cover. I thought this was going to be a great story. I was really looking forward to reading San Carlos. I am afraid I couldn't get into this story at all. I struggled to read past the first page.

This is a great read, a thriller in an unusual setting with 2 very different but equally complicated lead characters. I would highly recommend this book
