The Crime Fiction Alphabet arrives this week to letter “y”, and my Y is for Yanet. Yanet Acosta was born in Grachico (Tenerife) and has spent twenty year in Madrid. She is a writer and an specialised journalist in gastronomy. She teaches journalism at the University. Her first book The Chef’s Dead was published in July 2011. The argument revolves around a world-renowned Spanish chef that has died in Korea while he was eating a live octopus. Was it an accident, a homicide or a suicide? An insurance company must find out. A former member of CESID, the former Spanish intelligence agency, is hired to discover the truth.
I must admit I have not read her book but she is the only author I’ve found in Spanish to cover the letter “y”. As an added bonus you can read HERE the first chapters of her book translated into English by Ione Harris. Bon appétit.
The 2012 Crime Fiction Alphabet is a Community Meme hosted by Kerrie at Mysteries in Paradise. By Friday of each week participants try to write a blog post about crime fiction related to the letter of the week. Click HERE to visit other suggestions from fellow participants.
