When the affluent Lintons of Lenox Hill summon Sarah Brandt to examine their teenage daughter, their worst fear is confirmed: she is with child. The pregnancy is a mystery, however, as the young woman—mentally still a child herself—is never left on her own and denies that any man has ever hurt her. It’s a delicate situation, casting suspicion on those close to the Lintons, including their beloved minister, the Reverend Oliver Upchurch. But as Sarah and a reluctant Detective Sergeant Frank Malloy investigate, fate deals their inquiry a harsh blow. The reverend falls dead during a service—poisoned by cyanide-laced wine in his chalice. Now, they must not only uncover the truth behind the Linton girl’s pregnancy, they must track down Upchurch’s killer before this entire sordid affair wreaks havoc on more innocent lives…

England in den wilden zwanziger Jahren.

Sarah Brandt, a midwife in turn-of-the-century New York City, has seen more than her share of joy and sorrow, birth and death. Now she will see for the first time how the squalor of the streets can breed madness and murder… The Prodigal Son Mission on Mulberry Bend stands as a refuge for girls who otherwise would have to live by selling the only thing they have of value—themselves. The work being done there so impresses Sarah that she volunteers to help out however she can—with clothes, with medical assistance, with the organization of a benefit dinner. And when one of the girls is found dead and refused burial because of her former life, Sarah’s passion for justice is aroused. Reluctantly, Sergeant Frank Malloy agrees to look into the death, if only to keep Sarah from endangering herself by pursuing the matter. But Sarah cannot be kept out of the investigation—and just as Malloy feared, her attempts to find the cause of the unfortunate girl’s death in the circumstances of her life put her in deadly danger—from an unexpected source…

35 Nach dem Mord an Fernando Garrido, Generalsekretär der Kommunistischen Partei Spaniens, während der Sitzung des Zentralkomitees ist ganz Spanien in Aufruhr. Dabei erholt sich das Land gerade erst vom Franco-Regime und manch einer fürchtet bereits einen neuen Bürgerkrieg. Auch Privatdetektiv und Feinschmecker Pepe Carvalho bereitet sich auf das Schlimmste vor und legt sicherheitshalber Lebensmittelvorräte an. Doch dann holt ihn seine eigene kommunistische Vergangenheit ein, denn die Partei beauftragt ihn, den spektakulären Mord in Madrid diskret aufzuklären. In der Hauptstadt begegnet Carvalho einer Vielzahl von politischen Intrigen und alten Bekannten, die ihn misstrauisch beäugen. Am meisten aber quält ihn die Frage: Wo zum Teufel soll man in Madrid essen gehen? Auch dieser Fall des misanthropischen Privatdetektivs Pepe Carvalho erscheint in einer sorgfältigen Neubearbeitung, die Manuel Vázquez Montalbáns unverwechselbare und bissige Beschreibungen eindrücklicher denn je ins Deutsche überträgt.
