Synopsis

The mayor of Barcelona is being blackmailed.

A sex tape from her student days - one she never knew existed. The price: 300,000 euros and her immediate resignation.

A political chameleon who swept to power on a populist wave, she has her enemies. Nor can she trust those closest to her. Both her ex-husband and her deputy would profit from her fall.

Melchor Marín, living a quiet life in Terra Alta, is tempted back to Barcelona to work the case. But what seemed a simple matter has its roots in far more serious and disturbing crimes.

With the mayor on the verge of capitulation, a shock revelation changes everything - not least the course of Melchor's life. At long last, his heart's dark desire is in his grasp.

Praise for Even the Darkest Night

"A gem of a book, easily the best I've read this year" M W Craven

"A wonderful novel. I look forward to many more Melchor stories" A N Wilson

"The first in what promises to be an excellent series" Guardian

Translated from the Spanish by Anne McLean
