Water-blue Eyes

Domingo Villar

NOVEL NOIR. SIRUELA, 2006. 176 PAGES.

In Galicia, a land of light and shadows, ironic and ambiguous, where nothing is said and all is insinuated, a musician was found dead in a tower building by the sea. Leo Caldas, a laconic police inspector who combines his job at the precinct with a radiophonic consulting bureau, strives for answers amidst the fogs of dusk and the smoke of taverns, amidst a sip of wine and the scent of pine trees and salty waters. Ojos de Agua inaugurates a series which will have Inspector Caldas as its protagonist.

Water-blue Eyes is a classic crime novel with an intelligent narrative and subtle details that little by little reveal an ever more complex plot. [...] It is also an homage to absence: that of women, saxophone music, clear answers and, especially, Galicia.”

El País

 

“The novel Water-blue Eyes isn’t just well done, it’s written with style and authority.”
