SPANISH EYE


Tales from Leon Cazador, Private Investigator

I’ve just signed a contract with Solstice Publishing, USA for this book of 21 short stories featuring Leon Cazador. The stories were published between 2005-2009 but I have rewritten them for this collection.

The Solstice cover was designed within a day or so and I reckon it’s very eye-catching.

The book still has to go through the Solstice edit process so I don’t know yet when it will be available as an e-book and a print book. Watch this space.

Blurb:

Private Investigator Leon Cazador is half-English, half-Spanish and wholly against the ungodly. Sometimes he adopts an alias, Carlos Santos: he is a modern day Simon Templar, willing to hold back the encroaching night of unreason and help the gullible and downtrodden. He combats drug-traffickers, grave robbers, al-Qaeda infiltrators, misguided terrorists and conmen. Dodgy Spanish developers and shady expat English face his wrath. Traders in human beings, stolen vehicles and endangered species meet their match. Kidnappers, crooked mayors and conniving Lotharios come within his orbit of ire. Vengeful Chinese and indebted Japanese are his friends – and his enemies. Leon Cazador fights injustice in all its forms. It’s what he does.

Talk about timing. It was just a few days ago that i asked about a collection, and voila––––here's the front cover! Congrates.

Thanks, David & Frank. I reckon Solstice have created a great cover, even using a Spanish automatic pistol.

Hello from... Spain Nik ;) I come through a link in another blog. With a question: Your books are published here?

By the way, "Leon Cazador" is a great name. And for the "dodgy spanish developers", well, what can i say, you're right. Sadly.

P.D.: Sorry for my english, i know is poor.

Hi Deka, my books can be obtained in Spain though it's difficult. Best is to go online, try the bookdepository.co.uk site first as they sell postfree worldwide. Or click on the relevant Amazon ad on the left.
Glad you like Cazador's name. Your English is better than my Spanish!
