First sentence(s):
The rain let up around three o'clock.

The traffickers. The drug dealers. The smugglers.

They know what it takes to get a gun into Morocco, and so does Detective Laafrit.

When a fourth corpse in three days washes up in Tangier with a bullet in the chest, Laafrit knows this isn't just another 'illegal' who didn't make it to the Spanish coast.

As his team hunts for the murder weapon, Laafrit follows a hunch and reveals the killer at the heart of an international conspiracy.

A fast-paced crime thriller from the Arab west.

My two-bits:

This was a quick mystery read that introduced a relationship between Morocco and Spain. Got a sampling of the underworld via detectives.

  1. That connection between Morocco and Spain and a modern mystery is definitely appealing.
