Darkness in Malaga
In the narrow channel between Spain and Morocco, a Guardia-Civil patrol-boat discovers a small dinghy crammed with African migrants. They are towed into Algeciras and detained. By the following day, the majority have absconded.
Further along the Mediterranean coast on the eastern side of Malaga, Juliet Harding, a beautiful English girl, is relishing life in Nerja; her painful childhood a fading memory. As the town celebrates San Isidro, its patron saint’s day; she disappears.
Inspector Leon Prado, a successful but tainted detective with the Spanish National Police, is responsible for crimes involving foreigners. Slight problem; he only speaks Spanish. He recruits Phillip Armitage; an emotionally confused British linguist and Amanda Salisbury; a formidable American journalist, to assist with his investigations.
Their inquiries lead them around Malaga Province, its white villages and breathtaking landscapes. Only to find that a malevolent darkness lurks under the dazzling Andalusian light.
Death is not the only road to oblivion.
