“Montalbán does for Barcelona what Chandler did for Los Angeles—he exposes the criminal power relationships beneath the façade of democracy.”—Guardian

When the son of a rich financier is murdered, Carvalho is called upon to investigate his mysterious death. In his quest for the killer, Carvalho has to infiltrate the world of Satanism and religious sects. Torn between two women—his on-off partner Charo and her eternal hesitations, and the enigmatic Yes, a lover from his youth, the professional and personal merge, and a devastating betrayal leaves Carvalho fighting for his life.

Manuel Vázquez Montalbán was born in Barcelona in 1939. He was a journalist, novelist, and creator of Pepe Carvalho, a fast-living, gourmet private detective. He died in October 2003.

After researching this work, as well as the author, The Man of My Life seems like a twisted, thrilling mystery with some what complex characters. Although I have never read one of Montalban's novels, I would love to start with this one; the description alone makes one wonder what happens!

I gave up! Wasn't captured by the story or the characters and felt that the translation made for an uneven read. Read full review
