Marc Pastor - Barcelona Shadows

The first of Marc Pastor’s books to be translated into English, Barcelona Shadows is a dark, visceral mystery that “evokes the Gothic settings of Poe and Conan Doyle” (La Vanguardia). In Barcelona, in the early twentieth century, children are going missing. The police largely shrug off the disappearances, unmoved by the loss of the children of prostitutes and thieves, but, when a body is discovered drained of blood, Inspector Moises Corvo knows something is deeply wrong. His search for the truth leads him deep into the underbelly of the city. There, he will discover unspeakable horrors, so long as he avoids the wrath of the rich and powerful criminals who will do anything to stop him.
