“I did some growing up in Barcelona; it gave me a sense of vast horizons and worlds to conquer.“
“Lots of crime novels are suffused with atmosphere, but Gitana is almost entirely atmosphere through its opening pages…”
“Packed with action, and set in a fascinating city, it just seems to be made for the big screen.”
