The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman by Mamen Sanchez

The Altogether Unexpected Disappearance of Atticus Craftsman

Mamen Sanchez

Feeling down? Then lift your mood with some Spanish fun. 5 lovely ladies each with their own issues try to stop the closure of their literary magazine in a unique way, abducting the young English boss sent to Madrid to do the deed. A detective (surely from the Clouseau academy) sent to find him gets caught up in the melee, and crime confusion and comedy combine. Surprises await, but can cultural differences melt and love conquer all?

In the semi-darkness it was easy to confuse one person with another: the unwell woman with Remedios, the Englishmen with priests, the strangers with distant relatives.
'Oh, oh my dear Remedios has left us!' cried one of the aunts from Antequera at the top of her voice.
'Oh my dear, sweet Remedios!' shouted six or seven cousins in unison.
Marlow Craftsman, with the sole intention of setting them to rights, took a step forward and tried to explain that the woman wasn't Remedios, it was his Moira from Kent, and that she wasn't dead, she had simply fainted.
