Book Two in the Petra Delicado series Alicia Gimenez-Bartlett's lively style and rigorously exact descriptions of police procedure have won her numerous awards and made her Spain's best-loved mystery writer. In this best-loved volume of the Petra Delicado series, hard-nosed Inspector Petra Delicado and her sentimental sidekick, Fermin Garz n, begin an investigation into big-money dog smuggling with only a few, strange elements: a mongrel dog named Freaky, the corpse of a man with a seemingly endless list of aliases, and a handful of tips from an anonymous woman caller. Their best leads come from the least likely sources: a ruggedly handsome vet; a blonde bombshell who trains guard dogs; an eccentric university professor; and a haughty dog groomer. At times, these two world-wise detectives are at a loss, but Delicado and Garz n are not the sort of cops that rely on hunches. They methodically pursue their investigation, drawing the reader into a complex and sordid story. Dog Day is set in a Barcelona that few visitors to the city will ever see, a Barcelona that lurks beneath the surface of one of Europe's most dazzling cities. A broken heart, a new monstrosity, and another dead body accompany every step through this demimonde. Though passions and profits may turn men into beasts and animals into victims, Delicado and Garz n will stop at nothing to get to the root of these twisted and perplexing crimes.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Alicia Gimenez-BartlettPublisher: Europa EditionsPublished: 06/01/2006ISBN: 9781933372143Pages: 208Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 8.20h x 5.30w x 1.20dReview Citations: Publishers Weekly 04/17/2006 pg. 168Kirkus Reviews 05/15/2006 pg. 497Library Journal 06/01/2006 pg. 92Entertainment Weekly 06/30/2006 pg. 165New York Times 06/04/2006 pg. 21Booklist 07/01/2006 pg. 37Entertainment Weekly 07/28/2006 pg. 69
