Description

Antonia Scott is not afraid of anything. Only herself. But there is someone more dangerous than her. Someone who could beat her. The black wolf is getting closer. And Antonia, for the first time, is scared.In southern Spain, in the Costa del Sol, a key mafia figure is found brutally murdered in his villa. His pregnant wife, Lola Moreno, barely escapes an attempt to kill her in a shopping mall and is on the run. A shipping container from St. Petersburg arrives in port in Spain containing the corpses of nine women, all of whom suffocated. Now Antonia, with the help of her helper and protector, Jon Gutierrez, must track down the missing Lola. But they aren't the only ones on Lola's trail - a dangerous contract killer, known as the Black Wolf, is also on the hunt. And Antonia Scott, still plagued by her personal demons, must outwit, out-manoeuvre, and, ultimately, face this terrible, mysterious rival.

Critic Reviews

Aided by some punchy translation and flashes of bathetic humour, Black Wolf is larky fun and knows it. The Times
What impresses is the brainy brio of Gómez-Jurado's storytelling, as well as his striking depiction of Madrid as two cities, an elegant baroque facade concealing a gothic underworld The Sunday Times
Rivalling Scandi noir classic Girl With a Dragon Tattoo, this is an edgy thriller series, with intelligent satisfactions to match the action. Sydney Morning Herald
This is a fast paced and unpredictable thriller that builds to a tough and bloody climax. Canberra Weekly
Red Queen is one of the most extravagantly entertaining novels I’ve ever read. Sprinting from spectacular surprise to even-more-spectacular surprise; whirling from one crisply textured character to the next . . . it's an electrifying serial-killer thriller, a fiendishly clever puzzle mystery, and a sensitive portrait of a fascinating young woman. Red Queen tops even The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as a thinking reader’s thriller, and Antonia Scott is like a more sympathetic Lisbeth Salander. I loved every word -- A. J. Finn, bestselling author of The Woman in the Window
Often compared with Lisbeth Salander from The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Antonia Scott looks destined to leave every bit as lasting an impression Daily Mail
Fizzes with energy and lively scene-setting . . . There are obvious echoes of Lisbeth Salander, but the crackling interplay between Scott and Inspector Gutiérrez, a gay Basque policeman, adds an extra layer of originality, as does Nick Caistor’s sparkling translation Financial Times
A labyrinth of a mystery, crisply plotted and paced, way ahead of the pack -- Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Kaiser's Web
Fast-paced, memorable characters and a cinematic story that draws you in hook, line and sinker. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series -- John Marrs, author of The One
What Gómez-Jurado excels at, as conveyed in Nick Caistor’s brisk translation, is pacing of the breakneck variety. Short chapters, funny asides, lethally potent descriptions: they all contribute to a frenetic page-turning momentum . . . you’ll have great fun reading it The New York Times
Suspenseful and terrifying . . . A bit of Clarice Starling and a lot of Lisbeth Salander make Antonia a thoroughly compelling character, who will return in two more translations to complete Gómez-Jurado’s trilogy -- Jane Murphy, Booklist starred review
Exciting . . . a nice balance among character, action, and setting . . . The next two, Loba Negra (Black Wolf) and Rey Blanco (White King), must be translated into English, because thriller fans will be waiting. Fast-moving and quirky fiction from Madrid Kirkus Reviews
This has all the velocity and thrills of Stieg Larson’s Millennium series but none of the eyeroll-inducing misogyny . . . it's all-engrossing -- First Clue (starred review)
Fresh and appealing to those that enjoy interesting characters and stories that constantly move forward and tales that end in unexpected ways. Mystery and Suspense
Readers are going to fall for Antonia Scott. This character is, without a doubt, the best thing that has happened to the international thriller in the last ten years ABC
The most compelling and original detective since Lisbeth Salander The Times South Africa
