'Either you kill the bull, or the bull kills you' - traditional proverb.

Chief Inspector Max Cámara hates bullfighting, but one hot afternoon in Valencia he has to judge a festival corrida starring Spain's most famous young matador. That night he is back in the ring, and what he finds on the bloodstained sand shocks the city of Valencia to its core.

As Cámara hunts his prey through the streets and bars, firecrackers echo for the festival of Fallas, and the town hall election. The anti-bullfighting campaigners and the breeders of prize beasts fight to the death. The bullring is a test of virility, but should it be a site of national pride or shame?

Or the Bull Kills You has a brilliantly authentic setting and a great detective, with a love of flamenco and brandy. This is the first of a series of books starring the quirky and forceful Cámara - a man clearly destined to make his mark.

    " Fantastic setting, and learn't so much about bullfighting, within a great story and without being lectured on a stance either way. Great characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank | 12/21/2013

    " Pretty standard detective/murder mystery elevated by its setting in Valencia, particularly the climactic chase through crowded streets during the Fallas celebration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 12/16/2013

    " Pretty good thriller, but tells me way more about bullfighting than I ever wanted to know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan Richards | 12/13/2013

    " Great fun. I loved Valencia during Fallas, must visit. Good plot good characterization. Nice to learn some of the traditions of bullfighting too. "

    " What a good read! Valencia, Fallas festival, police, politics, bull fighting history and action.....food, romance and more than enough action. Perhaps the best chases I have read on foot..... Colorful descriptions and I hope to read more of Max Camara.... "

    " Enjoyed it v. much. Liked the narrator, who pronounced the Spanish with a Spanish accent. Layered plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larry Rogers | 9/22/2013

    " A fully realized place (Valencia, Spain), an attractive central character (a homicide chief inspector), and a crime revolving around what's either a memorable sport or a depraved cultural carryover from the medieval world (bullfighting) are all strong supports for an otherwise ordinary mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 1/14/2013

    " Pretty superficial, yet hard to follow disquisition on bull-fighting culture of Valencia, Spain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ami Travillian-vonesh | 10/24/2012

    " A compelling main character, good plot, set in Valencia Spain, a city I don't know personally but now would like to. It fits my main priority of making me feel like I'm someplace else. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracey | 10/21/2012

    " Fabulous mystery set in Spain. Really enjoyed it and it was my first so Jason Webster will be on my list from now on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Intriago | 10/14/2012

    " The bullfighting and the fiesta in Valencia make this book interesting and worthwhile reading. The mystery leaves a lot to be desired. The story does not flow very easily and the characters are hard to follow. The main character is good, has a lot of charm and is unorthodox for a police detective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sean Carroll | 5/23/2012

    " A murder mystery set in Spain. It gives a great description about the bullfighting industry and how it is tied to the Spanish culture. "
