"an entertaining read with plenty of plot twists"

There are more family secrets in All This I Will Give to You by bestselling Spanish author Dolores Redondo (AmazonCrossing, £8.99, translated by Michael Meigs)... When Manuel and his new acquaintance begin to ask questions, family skeletons soon start to tumble out of closets. All This I Will Give to You is an entertaining read with plenty of plot twists, but, although the writing itself is not prolix, this hefty 647-pager contains a fair bit of repetition, and one can’t help feeling that the story could have been told more efficiently.

The best crime novel in translation I read this year was Dolores Redondo’s All This I Will Give to You (Amazon Crossing, £8.99) in which a Spanish novelist discovers his dead husband is not all he seemed. It’s not only a much-needed, and clever, corrective to Scandinavian gloom but also a moving exploration of grief.
