Blood on the Saddle

by Rafael Reig

A very humorous, futuristic look at crime-ridden Madrid, through the eyes of private investigator Carlos Clot. You realise that you can't take this novel too seriously when you read about our hero tracking down characters who have left the pages of a novel in an attempt to assume a life of their own.


'A classic case on the literary circuit. One fine day they escaped from their author and tried to make it on their own. I don't know what they'd understand by "a life of their own" but the sad truth is that we were used to finding them in those downtown rooming houses with the washbasin backing on to the bedroom wall and the bathtub in the hall. Often when we ran into them it was too late: they were already appearing between the covers of a novel by someone else.'
