Southern Seas free pdf Barcelona detective Pepe Carvalho's radical past catches up with him when a powerful businessman--a patron of artists and activists--is found dead after going missing for a year. In search of the spirit of Paul Gauguin, Stuart Pedrell--eccentric Barcelona businessman, construction magnate, dreamer, and patron of poets and painters--disappeared not long after announcing plans to travel to the South Pacific. A year later he is found stabbed to death at a construction site in Barcelona. Gourmand gumshoe Pepe Carvalho is hired by Pedrell's wife to find out what happened. Carvalho, a jaded former communist, must travel through circles of the old anti-Franco left wing on the trail of the killer. But with little appetite for politics, Carvalho also leads us on a tour through literature, cuisine, and the criminal underbelly of Barcelona in a typically brilliant twist on the genre by a Spanish master.

About Manuel Vazquez Montalban

Poet, playwright, essayist, and novelist Manuel Vazquez Montalban (1939-2003) was one of modern Spain's greatest writers. A politically active leftist as a young man, he was jailed under Franco for four years for supporting a miners' strike. As an adult, he also became a gourmand, and wrote often about food. His Pepe Carvalho series--set in Montalban's native Barcelona--has won international acclaim, including the Planeta prize (1979) and the International Grand Prix de Litterature Policiere (1981). Patrick Camiller has also translated Che Guevara's African diaries.
