Books Info:

Barcelona Shadows free pdf CSI meets Jack the Ripper in early 20th century Barcelona: captivating, scary and genre-breaking. Children are going missing in Barcelona. A body is found, twisted, drained of blood. The locals say a devil is moving in the shadows, spiriting away the innocent. To the police, it just means more corpses in a city where death is a daily occurrence. Who cares about the children of a few prostitutes and thieves? Inspector Moises Corvo-jaded, dissolute, yet with an uncanny sixth sense-knows something is different this time. To discover the true identity of the "monster" he must journey through Barcelona's underworld, from high-class brothels to lurid casinos, where there are powerful people who will do anything to stop him. He cannot imagine the horror that awaits him. Visceral and shocking, Barcelona Shadows opens up the heart of evil, in a macabre world where the lines between life and death are blurred. Barcelona Shadows is based on a true story, found by Barcelona CSI Marc Pastor in the archives of the Barcelona police. 'Imagine a gothic, Technicolor, historical western, by turns lurid and tersely gripping, and sometimes genuinely frightening...A great story' Telegraph

'As gruesome as it is gripping. ..the writing is extraordinarily vivid...Highly recommended.' Independent 'Our creepy storyteller is as compelling as the murderess whose monstrous crimes he chronicles...Pastor makes it all breathe effortlessly.' Financial Times 'Gruesome, creepy and hugely entertaining' The Times 'Blending Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stephenson, Charles Dickens, and Sergio Leone, Barcelona Shadows is a gothic delight. The city will never be the same again.' The Conversation 'Brims with the stuff of a classic adventure novel passed through the sieve of post-modernity, and which captivates the reader from the very start. Essential reading for all who love literature.' Sebastia Bennassar, Diari de Mallorca 'Blends intrigue, terror and police investigation from an original narrative perspective and with a recreation of the period that evokes the gothic environs of Poe and Conan Doyle.' Rosa Maria Pinol La Vanguardia 'A fantastic novel' Ernest Alos El Periodico 'Blackly entertaining and gruesome gothic murder mystery' Metro 'Mesmerizing...the writing is brilliant, a thing of beauty' Books, Bones and Buffy 'Wonderfully written with a great story, engaging characters, murder, mystery and muck!' Mean Streets 'A terrifying read, but a bloody good one too' Crime Squad Marc Pastor (b. 1977) studied criminology and crime policy, and works as a crime-scene investigator in Barcelona.
