It’s ages since El Rubio decided not to get involved in any crime, but his wife is critically ill and he is giving it a second thought when Junior, a local drug dealer, propose him to attack his front man in Gran Canaria.
In order to organize the assault, he will have to seduce El Palmera, a lame friend whose main interest is to open a bar, and Cora, a luxury escort who knows the end of her beauty is quite close.
The Pekinese Strategy is acting proud, taking advantage of any distraction of your enemy to attack and run away. This is what the antiheroes of this novel will do when they see they have stepped on a tiger’s tail and they ended up submerged in a bloody persecution.
A high voltage crime fiction, a harsh choral about losers. (The Ella Sher Literary Agency)
The Pekinese Strategy by Alexis Ravelo has won the Hammett Prize to the best crime novel in Spanish published in 2013.
