Murder in the Central Committee by Manuel Vázquez Montalbán( Book )

100 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 810 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why me?" asks Pepe Carvalho. "Because you're an ex-communist. Because you know who we are, what we're like, where we come from, and where we're going." At a meeting of the central committee of Spain's Communist Party, in a room both locked and guarded, general secretary Fernando Garrido is stabbed to death. But the Party refuses to believe it was an inside job. They turn to former member Pepe Carvalho, once a prisoner of Franco and now, he says well out of politics. Displaced from Barcelona to hectic, unfamililiar Madrid, Carvalho is soon out of his depth. When not pursuing the city's culinary and carnal temptations, or indulging his taste for book-burning, he winds a perilous path through post-Facist Spanish power struggles and politics

"In search of the spirit of Paul Gauguin, Stuart Pedrell--eccentric Barcelona businessman, construction magnate, dreamer, and patron of poets and painters--disappeared not long after announcing plans to travel to the South Pacific. A year later he is found stabbed to death at a construction site in Barcelona. Gourmand gumshoe Pepe Carvalho is hired by Pedrell's wife to find out what happened. Carvalho must travel through circles of the old anti-Franco left wing on the trail of the killer. But with little appetite for politics, Carvalho also leads us on a tour through literature, cuisine, and the criminal underbelly of Barcelona in a typically brilliant twist on the genre by a Spanish master"--Page 4 of cover
