Inspector Héctor Salgado, the salty hero of The Summer of Dead Toys, returns in another crime thriller set in Barcelona, this time during a winter cold snap.

Senior staff at Alemany Cosmetics come home with a secret after a team-building retreat in a remote country house. Each has anonymously received a photo showing dogs hanging dead from a tree near the farm. Now they’re committing suicide, one by one. The connection between the gut-wrenching photos and heartbreaking suicides remains a befuddling mystery—one that racks Barcelona’s executive think tanks, and could lead to a frightening end.

Deciphering the personalities of these youthful executives and their power structures is not easy, but Inspector Salgado has his own ways of making them speak. Meanwhile, Barcelona is freezing, suffering from an unusual cold spell and Salgado’s wife, Ruth, is still missing. Salgado must break through the icy, furtive layers of this young group in order to save his family, his reputation, and his city.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Absorbing and surprising.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “The macabre premise is a shocker, but Salgado is the real surprise.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Rich, nuanced characterizations distinguish Hill’s impressive second thriller featuring Barcelona Inspector Héctor Salgado.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Mesmerizing.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Hill’s atmospheric sophomore entry, a bestseller in Spain, should make you double-check your catalog for the first title, The Summer of Dead Toys. The characters are intriguingly complex and the author skillfully pulls the rug out with a flourish at the end.”

    Library Journal

  • “Salgado is one of the more appealing world-weary police detectives in crime fiction—and Barcelona (where the author lives) provides a fresh backdrop for the action. Another strong effort by the Spanish novelist, who again sets us up for the next installment of the series with a tantalizing ending.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “A welcome corrective to snow-blindness from too much Nordic noir…Excellent characterization, a sympathetic and engaging protagonist, and plenty of plot twists, with a cliffhanger ending that sets things up nicely for the next in the series.”

    Guardian (London) on The Summer of Dead Toys

  • “This dark thriller is…acutely observed and meticulously crafted.”

    John Verdon, author of Let the Devil Sleep, on The Summer of Dead Toys

  • A Publishers Weekly Pick of the Week, June 2014
