Andalusian Mystery Series

Darkness in Malaga

Literary Titan – Gold Medal Award

In this first book of the Andalusian Mystery Series, four teenagers are brutally interfered with by the headmaster of their Marbella college. They can’t tell anyone, because the abuser threatens to reveal their own dark family secrets. When the grounds are sold, the head steals the proceeds and disappears.

They pledge to track him down and deliver justice. Their justice. For thirty years, their target eludes them but then one of the now-adult four inadvertently nearly catches him. Knowing he is still alive reinvigorates their thirst for retribution, at any price.

When pretty youngsters start vanishing, the wily veteran Detective Inspector, Leon Prado, initially assumes that the booming sex-tourism industry on the Costa del Sol needs more tasty morsels for their private clubs.

The truth was far worse than a nightmare.

"There's an old adage that authors should write what they know about and few are better qualified to write novels based upon their own field of expertise than Paul S Bradley. In his debut release Darkness In Malaga, he delivered a corker of a read and set high expectations for future releases. Darkness In Ronda has decidedly exceeded those expectations and is unreservedly recommended."

Found this a brilliantly informative Crime Thriller. I've never liked the idea of bull-fighting but once the whole scenario was explained I couldn't put it down. Enjoyed the building up of the characters from the first book "Darkness in Malaga" and look forward to his next book.

Darkness in Granada

In this climax of the Andalusian Mystery Series, four adults remain desperate to track down their former college headmaster. He abused them as teenagers, and they want justice at any price, their justice.

The abuser and only one of his victims remain at large but the wily, veteran Detective Inspector Leon Prado isn’t prepared to wait for events to unfold. He sets out to entrap them both.

The abuser has one remaining passion, Paintings of Pablo Picasso’s Muses. From the private collection of a reclusive American mistress exiled in Granada City, seven of the muse paintings are to be exhibited in the magnificent Alhambra Palace. They haven’t been seen in public for over thirty years.

Prado, with help from his translators Amanda and Phillip, takes over the event.

They wait patiently for either man to make an appearance.

Will they be tempted?
