As usual I was ill prepared with my holiday reading material...My wife, however, was well stocked up, so I raided her stash. I found amongst the magazines and books a cover of Sunflowers that took my fancy and this was my introduction to Pedro Martinez. I was delighted to have found an excellent and easy read to suit my sunny surroundings and rather lazy holiday, but the more I read the more I knew I would have to follow this series of books to the end. I am now somewhat hooked and shall be settling down at home to enjoy the very last word of the very last page that is yet to come. The story of Pedro and the invasion of the tourists to the Costa Brava is a ripping yarn that I would readily recommend. I remember my first holiday abroad which by coincidence was in Callella Spain, a location prominent in the book. From Pedro's early tragedy as a child through to his dreams of university kept me intrigued and the mix of characters and adventures makes a great read. Not forgetting of course Maria, you will have to read it yourself to find out more!
