Huida al sur
Premio Edebé de Literatura Juvenil 2008
The Riverside Palace hotel, an old mansion inspired by the Alhambra in Granada, still stands before the sea. In the garden behind, there is a small tomb, always covered in flowers. If you ask the hotel staff, any one can tell you the amazing story that happened not so long ago…
With the constant intrigue we are so used to in Juan Madrid’s masterful novels, this work relates not just a plot of crimes and action-packed adventure but also the smells and tastes of the south, its plants and vegetation, its sea and sky, and above all, a human mosaic of acts of heroism and meanness.
