What you need to know before your trail

On a sabbatical from the Metropolitan Police, Beatrice Stubbs is considering her future while touring Northern Spain. In the Basque County, she encounters a distant acquaintance. Beautiful, bloody-minded journalist Ana Herrero is onto a story. Beatrice, scenting adventure, offers her expertise. The two women are sucked into a mystery of missing persons, violent threats, mutilated bodies and industrial-scale fraud. They are out of their depth. With no official authority and unsure who to trust, they find themselves up to their necks in corruption, blackmail and Rioja. Beatrice calls for the cavalry. The boys are back, and this time, it’s a matter of taste. But when her instincts prove fallible, Beatrice discovers that justice is a matter of interpretation

Travel Guide

Discover the Rioja region of Vitoria BookTrail style

Well this isn’t the relaxing tour in Northern Spain you might hope for! It’s much more interesting than that with a policewoman supposedly relaxing but getting embroiled in a mystery similar to what she helps to investigate at home.

Beatrice very much hopes to appreciate the wonderful food and wine of the area, but that is soon a pipe dream. It’s interesting that the region, setting and wine, specifically white Rioja, plays a central role in the story.

This book is imbued with the aromas and tastes of the Basque Country. Eat before reading as you will certainly be enjoying Spanish food and wine by the end.
