The new Max Cámara novel -- a fresh killing wakens the dead. 

     Sent on sick leave after his last case, Max Cámara returns to his home town in the plains of La Mancha -- birthplace of Don Quixote and producer of the world's finest saffron.

     As he arrives, the police discover the naked body of a young woman on a rubbish tip. For Cámara, it's far too close for comfort to an unsolved case that shocked the city thirty years ago. It's hard to stay away, though, especially when the local police chief, a childhood friend, is calling on him for help, whispering about an international saffron mafia. And then there's his eccentric grandfather, Hilario, who appears to be harbouring secrets of his own.

     Back in a world he has been avoiding for years, Cámara is dogged by questions. It's time for some difficult choices: leave the police for good, and continue with the only woman who really understands him, or join a murder investigation that will tear open old wounds?
