Row of books written by Anna Nicholas

Her writing is observational, gives a highly entertaining account of rural life in Mallorca and her writing style easy to read. Many readers have been drawn to the island by her books to holiday and to live.

But her highly anticipated next book The Devil´s Horn offers something quite different to her usual theme which has catalogued her family’s journey on the island over a decade, such as Lizzard in my Luggage and A Chorus of Cockerels.  

The Devil´s Horn, to be published on 11 October by Burro Books  is her debut crime novel ! 

When 33-year-old Isabel Flores Montserrat quits a promising career with the Spanish police to run her mother’s holiday rentals agency in rural Mallorca, it seems that her crime-fighting days are far behind. However, in just a few days, the disappearance of a young British girl, the violent murder of an elderly neighbour and the discovery of a Colombian drug cartel threaten to tear apart Isabel’s idyllic life.

Together with local police chief Tolo Cabot, an admirer of her unorthodox methods, Isabel must race against the clock to untangle a sinister web of crime and restore peace to the island once more. 

I, for one, cannot wait and have pre-ordered my copy!
