Book Two in the Petra Delicado series

Alicia Gimenez-Bartlett's lively style and rigorously exact descriptions of police procedure have won her numerous awards and made her Spain's best-loved mystery writer.

In this best-loved volume of the Petra Delicado series, hard-nosed Inspector Petra Delicado and her sentimental sidekick, Fermin Garz#65533;n, begin an investigation into big-money dog smuggling with only a few, strange elements: a mongrel dog named Freaky, the corpse of a man with a seemingly endless list of aliases, and a handful of tips from an anonymous woman caller. Their best leads come from the least likely sources: a ruggedly handsome vet; a blonde bombshell who trains guard dogs; an eccentric university professor; and a haughty dog groomer.

At times, these two world-wise detectives are at a loss, but Delicado and Garz#65533;n are not the sort of cops that rely on hunches. They methodically pursue their investigation, drawing the reader into a complex and sordid story. Dog Day is set in a Barcelona that few visitors to the city will ever see, a Barcelona that lurks beneath the surface of one of Europe's most dazzling cities. A broken heart, a new monstrosity, and another dead body accompany every step through this demimonde. Though passions and profits may turn men into beasts and animals into victims, Delicado and Garz#65533;n will stop at nothing to get to the root of these twisted and perplexing crimes.

I really, liked these two characters, quirky without being silly. I liked the first book better, just maybe a little too much self reflection on Petra's part, though it true her life is on the messy side. This book got a bit overblown, hopefully in the next book everyone will have calmed down a bit.
