Gitana -1st Edition/1st Impression by Dominic Martell

Gitana by Dominic Martell

Pascual shoves his chair into place and stows the broom. Antonio has started to play, quietly, a slow mournful siguiriya. Behind the bar Pascual starts on the glasses. He loves the first moments of the shift, in the drowsy late afternoon when the sun still just reaches the walls across the narrow street. Later in the evening Sara will appear. A shadow darkens the door and Pascual looks up from the sink …Pascual is a character unique in crime fiction: a former terrorist with many deaths on his conscience who has turned informer and gone underground. He lives a life of sorts in Barcelona, a city whose maze of alleyways provides cover for hunter and hunted alike. But he can never relax: the amiable American tourist, for instance, who turns up in the bar where Pascual works is worringly clued up – and then, even more worryingly, turns up dead …’The Thriller Nouveau of deceit, betrayal, tears. It crackles with electricity: one of the very best of the late nineties’ Lionel Davidson on LYING CRYING DYING. ‘A thorny tale, something like Le Carre’s THE LITTLE DRUMMER GIRL, rewritten in a taut style of fifties flim noir’ John Williams in the Mail on Sunday, on LYING CRYING DYING.
