Cracking Crime: The Good Suicides by Antonio Hill

The Good Suicides by Antonio Hill

We’re not quite ready to leave Spain yet so this week’s Cracking Crime is another summer sizzler!

About the Book

Young, free and … dead

Senior staff at Alemany Cosmetics company come home with a secret after a team-building course in a remote country house. Now, they are committing suicide, one by one. Soon, they may all be dead. Each has received a photo from an anonymous source of three dogs hanging dead from a tree near the house.
Deciphering the personalities of these high-earning executives and their power structure, Inspector Salgado has his own way of making them speak. But Barcelona is now freezing cold and the city is hunkering against an unusually cold spell. Can Salgado break the ice before it’s too late?

It’s Dead Good because…

At the centre of this series is the sharp, appealing and deeply sympathetic character of detective Hector Salgado who is distraught by the recent disappearance of his wife.

Salgado’s assignment is to look into a succession of suicides by the senior executives at a local cosmetics manufacturer in Spain. Shortly after a team building exercise in a remote country house, the employees drop like flies and nobody wants to talk about it… Anyone who has been on a team building day can appreciate the unnatural environment that is created. This is especially creepy.

Barcelona is a character in itself. You can feel the heat radiating off every page and smell the dry, heaving streets; it provides the perfect antidote to Nordic noir. A must have if you are taking a trip this summer – or going on a company retreat!
