Series Bevilacqua and Chamorro, Nr. 11
This new case for Bevilacqua and Chamorro marks the 20th anniversary of the series that’s captivated more than 2,000,000 readers.
A brilliant young computer whiz who made his fortune on the darkest side of cyberspace is kidnapped in Gibraltar. He does not appear after his family pays a heavy ransom, so the case falls into the expert hands of Sub-Lieutenant Bevilacqua and Sargent Chamorro. The two travel to the Strait of Gibraltar and encounter a microcosm where laws are relative, dirty money runs rampant, and laundering it is a daily necessity. A place far from the heart, where nothing belongs to anyone, everything can be taken, nobody looks and nobody sees. In short, a place where anything is possible.
“I publicly proclaim my admiration for the Bevilacqua and Chamorro novels, and express my gratitude to Lorenzo Silva for the pleasure and teachings his books have given me” […] “In the Bevilacqua and Chamorro novels, the solutions are captivating, and the problems terribly real and contemporary.” Paul Preston
“The plot runs like a high-end car. An engine that can take anything, from the quiet highways where feelings travel to the mountain roads where you need four-wheel drive to narrate powerful action scenes with patrol boats and helicopters.” Tino Pertierra, La Nueva España
