Leon fights those who would harm

I wouldn't usually choose short stories, generally the longer a story the better, and if it's part of a series then better still! However, this book features a series of tales about the same private investigator, and gives a real feel for the characters and locations involved, I enjoyed it immensely and look forward to further books featuring Leon!

I know Nik Morton more as a writer of westerns. His Bullets For a Ballot was reviewed here a while ago. Spanish Eye is something else.

Nik is one of those Brits who left the dark, rainy North for the sunny south coast of Spain, which is where this collection of 22 stories, featuring private investigator Leon Cazador, takes place.

More at my blog.

I'm biased since I wrote this collection of 21 tales by a half-Spanish half-English PI.
