Description

Humor and everyday characters meld in this high-voltage mystery novel in which the important question is not who the killer is, but rather who will be the next to die. Blondie gave up crime decades ago, but his wife s serious illness has him reconsidering a proposal from Junior, a local cocaine dealer, to rob the front his bosses maintain in Gran Canaria. It won t be difficult to rope in Palmera, a man long unemployed, and Cora, a high-end escort keenly aware of her fading charms, for the robbery. The strategy of the Pekingese dog is to take advantage of its foe s slip-ups in order to attack and escape, and the protagonists follow suit when they find themselves immersed in a wild chase that leaves a bloody trail. Readers will have a hard time putting down this thrilling book populated by corrupt police, drug dealers, prostitutes, and money launderers. "El humor y los personajes del dia a dia se combinan en esta novela negra de alto voltaje en la que lo importante no es saber quien es el asesino, sino quien sera el proximo en morir. El Rubio dejo de delinquir hace decadas, pero la grave enfermedad de su esposa le hace replantearse una proposicion de Junior, un distribuidor local de cocaina, de atracar al testaferro de sus jefes en Gran Canaria. No le costara seducir a Palmera, un parado de larga duracion, y a Cora, una prostituta de lujo quien sospecha cercano el momento en el que se esfumen sus encantos, para participar en el asalto. La estrategia del pequines es mostrarse fiero y aprovechar cualquier despiste del adversario para atacar y huir, y los protagonistas haran eso cuando se encuentran inmersos en una persecucion frenetica que deja un rastro sangriento. El lector leera de un tiron este emocionante libro poblado por policias corruptos, narcotraficantes, prostitutas y blanqueadores de dinero.""show more
