Even the Darkest Night

By Javier Cercas & Anne McLean
Even the Darkest Night by Javier Cercas & Anne McLean digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

INTERNATIONAL BEST SELLER • WINNER OF SPAIN’S BIGGEST LITERARY PRIZE • Barcelona detective Melchor Marín is sent to the countryside to investigate a horrific double murder. Before long, it becomes clear that nothing about the case is quite as it seems in this “sweeping romantic novel in the form of a police procedural” (Wall Street Journal).

The first book in the internationally acclaimed series: Melchor, the son of a prostitute, went to prison as a teenager, convicted of working for a Colombian drug cartel. Behind bars, he read a book that changed his life: Les Misérables. Then his mother was murdered. He decided to become a cop.
 
This new case, in Terra Alta, a remote region of rural Catalonia—the murder of a wealthy local man and his wife—will turn Melchor’s life upside down yet again.
 
Even the Darkest Night is a thought-provoking, elegantly constructed thriller about justice, revenge, and, above all, the struggles of a righteous man trying to find his place in a corrupt world.

“3 ☆ This was a so-so police procedural. The novel started off great with a murder but soon gets overshadowed by the back story of the main character/detective. I did enjoy reading about both the present and the past but it seems like it should've been two books. An overall okay read for me.”
