About the Book    About the Author

The short stories in this collection are largely set in Spain, though Italy, France and the north of England are also represented. Most of the tales relate the adventures of Detective Oscar Garcia and his assistant Jose, who specialise in the kind of missing persons cases which benefit from Oscar's somewhat contemplative frame of mind, although it turns out there are frequently more things in heaven and earth than are dreamed of in his philosophy. There's also an extended story about the mythical village of Bocacorta, and another featuring an imagined meeting between a noted French thinker and an English playwright. There's some mixing of genres going on, but what is common throughout the book is a literary style that's playful and thought provoking.
