«A fun mystery novel, whose greatest feat is the combination of typical thriller elements with those of a high comedy, in an intense crescendo that intrigues and surprises the reader (…) A very entertaining novel, a great read.» Babelia

Synopsis

(Red Light, Green Light) A novel  full of thrills and humor developed around the robbery of one of Goya´s paintings during its exposition in London. Nuria loses her suitcase as soon as she lands in London. What she can’t possibly imagine is how that small stroke of bad luck will set off a chain of events that involve her in an adventure with a shady diplomatic official, an ambassador with a reputation as a ladies’ man, two clueless detectives, a policeman who wants to be Sherlock Holmes, a peaceful tramp and a self-portrait by Francisco de Goya. Many different fun characters take part in this game filled with humour and suspense that’s as tremendously fast paced as the author’s previous novel, Holy Disaster.
