Description

With cases filled with books which were given by a relative, the young Sancho Bordaberri decides to open, in the postwar period, a modest bookshop in Getxo. Right after that, he received the complicity of Klodobike, enthusiastic and passionate woman. Basically, what Sancho wants is to be a writer of detective novels, but never manages to match his admired Hammett or Chandler and publishers will return all his stories. Until one day he receives the tenth rejected manuscript and realizes that the only murder that occurred in Getxo, before the war, is still unresolved and that a real case can be very helpful for someone with no imagination. Sancho then becomes a private detective to clarify who wanted to kill the twins Altube chaining on a rock for the tide to drown. During his investigations and interviews with suspects, discover that he is writing a real novel, with a new style, in which he is both narrator and protagonist, a detective who will now be called Samuel Sparta as a tribute to Sam Spade.

Review Text

Con los baúles cargados de libros que le entrega un familiar, el joven Sancho Bordaberri decide abrir , en plena posguerra , una modesta librería de lance en Getxo . Cuenta enseguida con la complicidad de Klodobike , una mujer entusiasta y vehemente . En el fondo , lo que quiere Sancho es ser escritor de novelas policiacas , pero nunca logra igualar a sus admirados Hammett o Chandler y las editoriales le devuelven todas sus historias . Hasta que un día descubre , con el enésimo manuscrito rechazado en las manos , que el único asesinato que ocurrió en Getxo , antes de la Guerra, está todavía sin resolver y que contar un caso real puede ser de gran ayuda para alguien sin imaginación . Sancho se convierte entonces en detective privado para aclarar quién quiso matar a los gemelos Altube encadenándolos en una roca para que la marea los ahogara . Durante sus pesquisas y entrevistas con los sospechosos , descubrirá que está escribiendo una novela real, con un estilo nuevo , en la que él es a la vez el narrador y el protagonista, un detective que a partir de ahora se llamará Samuel Esparta en homenaje a Sam Spade .
