All is Silence by Manuel Rivas

All is Silence

Manuel Rivas

Surrounding the coastal shores of Galicia, smuggling and corruption are rife. A host of unique characters play a role in the melee, with each assuming an alias which adds dimension to the story. This edgy, haunting read kept me on my toes throughout, with the explosive ending taking me by surprise.

'We’re talking about tons of the stuff', says Fins. 'Thousands of kilos of cocaine. Thousands of millions in profit. Snow, blow, stardust! They want to turn this coast into the largest landing stage in Europe. It may already be that.'
