LIFE SURPRISES YOU
It’s the last day of the month and we are thrown into June, with a rather shaky spring in many aspects, and not just weather-wise. Also looking forward to summer and having that well-needed break. With every passing year I notice the need to calm down and relax, with my people by my side, go away from the noise, routines and the menacing clock. I think this clearly means that I am getting old and I honestly never thought that it would come to a point where I would need to click on the “Stop” button. However, it has come to that, and since life keeps surprising me, I really need to take things in a different way and know how to put things in the right place. Nothing is black and white, there are always lots of nuances.
Just like in Susana Rodríguez’s latest novel, TE VERÉ ESTA NOCHE, which puts the noir trilogy (published by Debolsillo) to an end. In it, Irene Ochoa, the main character, and her love interest, inspector Vázquez, investigate the death, under weird circumstances, of her husband. We know more about her and him in every novel, although the entries in the trilogy can be read independently, because the crimes and cases that the inspector and his team must solve are different in each book. In this last installment we have the disappearance of an entire family after a car crash, in which only the mother is found. We have no idea where the rest are and this is what will drive the investigation team. Moreover, inspector Vázquez will learn things he would have hoped to never know, an unexpected surprise, maybe shut out by his deepest desires, to mark the end of this magnificent trilogy that has sold more than 10.000 copies between the first two books. The third, just published, has already been reprinted because Susana already has a well-deserved fan base, and because she is a formidable writer in the genre, and can still be discovered by many.
Her stories grab you from beginning to end in a way it’s impossible to express. Like a magnetic force dragging you into the story that will only leave you wanting for more. A great reading experience for the summer is knocking at our door, and I can assure that you won’t have enough with just one.
