    1. Having really enjoyed The Summer of Dead Toys I was keen to read the next novel featuring Inspector Hector Salgado The first book was set in a sweltering, Barcelona summer, but now it is winter and events from the summer have bled into this story Leire Castro, who was partnered with Salgado in the last mystery, is now on maternity leave However, with Salgado s ex wife, Ruth, still missing after the Summer of Dead Toys, she decides to do a little investigating on her own time That side story acco [...]

    4. I received this uncorrected galley from librarything For the most of this novel I was set on a 4 Star rating The pacing seemed to taper off in the middle and I didn t feel like I was getting invested in the characters As I got toward the end the pacing picked up, which was making me reconsider the rating a little What really changed the rating was the fact that I started investing emotions in some of the characters and I saw the significance of the overwhelming number of perspectives The kicker [...]

    5. On a mobile phone, a photograph of a tree, and hanging from its branches The rigid bodies of three hanged dogs A shocking image Imagine the thoughts and feelings of the business executives who came across these dogs whilst out on yet another exercise in their team building course But who would take a photograph of this horrific scene, and why would it be sent to the mobile phone of one of the staff, just before she threw herself in front of a metro train Inspector H ctor Salgado is intrigued, an [...]

    6. A good mystery but nothing out of the ordinary It has a good narrative, interesting characters and a great setting Barcelona The story revolves around 8 employees that attend a team building seminar in which an occurrence leads them to take an oath not to divulge the incident This situation leads to 3 suicides to take place in a short period of time Inspector Salgado, an Argentinian, whose wife, Ruth, has recently disappeared is assigned to the investigation While Inspector Salgado is investigat [...]

    7. In The Summer of Dead Toys, his first novel in the Barcelona based Inspector Hector Selgado series, Antonio Hill established both an interesting cast of characters and presented himself as a story teller to be reckoned with As impressive as his debut was, his second book in the series, The Good Suicides, takes things further With three suicides within a cosmetics company and nothing but the image of a tree with dead dogs hanging from it to link them together, Selgado must solve a bizzare mystery [...]

    8. I have never read The Summer of Dead Toys book one of the Inspector Hector Salgado books However I have seen it around and thought about checking it out Thus when I saw this book and read the premise of it, I thought ok now is the time to finally check this author out I do have to say that I did like this author I think Ms Hill does have a good talent for writing and telling a good story I did like this book What I did not like was that even though the chapters and sections were quick reading, t [...]

    9. Tan bueno como el primero La investigaci n principal est muy bien llevada y las historias secundarias y personales interesan mucho y enganchan Muy recomendable.

    10. I started the trilogy by reading the middle one first this one and I didn t even know it was part of a bigger series So I was pretty worried about having missed a point with Ruth Valldaura s case, which I now know I didn t I thought an open end that makes no sense to me Duh Anyway, there s a third part and a first as well I should read, and I ve enjoyed this one so much that they are the ones I m going to get now.

    11. Me ha gustado a n m s que el primero, muchos personajes, muchas tramas, muy bien resuelto Profundiza m s en la personalidad de Leire Castro, que me parece un personaje interesante aunque demasiado parecido a Salgado Bevilaqua y sigue con el misterio que hila esta novela con la anterior De hecho, deja un cliffhanger de tal tama o al final que ya estoy con el tercer volumen

    12. Es bueno, me gusta como esta escrito, que cuenten de varios puntos de vista y la vida de los personajes, pero lleg un momento que me pareci que se hablaba m s de cosas secundarias que de la investigaci n en s , el caso se resolvi m s por adivinar que por otra cosa.
