He lives near Valencia with his wife, the flamenco dancer, Salud, and their two sons."

Reviews

Tight plotting, rich atmospherics, and an engagingly flawed lead distinguish Webster's second contemporary mystery. "Publishers Weekly (starred review)" Returning after a well-received debut, CI Camara remains a fresh and appealing protagonist whether in victory or defeat. "Kirkus Reviews" Max is a wonderful character, and Valencia is a splendid setting, but Webster also employs real, decades-long tensions in Spanish national affairs andcurrent tensions over legalized abortion and gay marriage to great effect. Fans of international crimefiction will love this series, and they are sure to add Valencia to their genre gazetteers. "Booklist" [Camara's] perceptions of what is wrong with Spanish society form an original background to a complex thriller. "The Independent (UK)" Jason Webster has made Valencia his own ... This is Chief Inspector Max Camara's second outing, and his colourful personality is every bit a match for the vibrant but often troubled home of paella he has to keep safe. "The Daily Mirror (UK)" [Camara] is a lively addition to Mediterranean coppery. "The London Times" Valencia looks dazzling in Jason Webster's first novel. "The New York Times Book Review on Or the Bull Kills You" With its rapid pace and wonderfully flawed detective, this vibrant novel has tremendous appeal. "Library Journal (starred review) on Or the Bull Kills You" [A] remarkable first novel, a baffling mystery. "Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Or the Bull Kills You" [A] superb Spanish police procedural . . . The country's culture and heritage, the city, the two faced politicians, and the sport provide strong pillars to a terrific whodunit. "Midwest Book Review on Or the Bull Kills You" [Max Camara is] one of the most attractive figures to enter recent detective fiction. . . . Like the best detective stories, this book becomes a scrutiny of our own most powerful drives and secrets. "The Independent (UK) on Or the Bull Kills You" Webster does for Spain what Michael Dibdin did to wonderful effect in his Zen' novels for Italy. . . . A marvellous novel ripe with passion, love, and murder. "CrimeSquad.com on Or the Bull Kills You""
