"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."

When Antonio Jauma, a director of the multinational conglomerate Petnay, is murdered, his widow seeks out private investigator Pepe Carvalho, who had met and forgotten the playboy executive after their single chance encounter--back when Carvalho still worked for the CIA. Jauma was a womanizer, according to a friend, of the least pleasant sense, and the police have decided that the murder is the work of an unhappy pimp. But Carvalho doggedly pursues his own phlegmatic investigation, with time out for his signature book burning (Sartre's Critique of Dialectical Reasoning ; Sholokov's And Quiet Flows the Don), cooking (leek soup and a freshly-caught steamed turbot), and running with his girlfriend Charo, whose last name he can't remember

When Pepe Carvalho's uncle asks him to find his son, Raul, in Buenos Aires, Pepe is reluctant. All he knows about Argentina is 'tango, Maradona, and the disappeared', and he has no desire to find out more. But family is family and soon Carvalho is in Buenos Aires, getting more caught up in Argentina's troubled past than is good for anybody. As he gets nearer to finding Raul, he begins to realize the full impact of the traumas caused by a military junta who went so far as to kidnap the children of the political activists they tortured. A few excellent tangos, bottles of Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon and a sexy semiotician are no compensation for the savage brutality Carvalho experiences in his attempt to come to grips with Argentina's recent history

Los pájaros de Bangkok : novela by Manuel Vázquez Montalbán( Book )

52 editions published between 1978 and 2017 in Spanish and Undetermined and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En la Barcelona de 1979 Stuart Pedrell, un importante hombre de negocios, aparece muerto cuando todo el mundo le suponía haciendo un viaje por la Polinesia. El detective Pepe Carvalho tiene que investigar el crimen y poco a poco empieza a conocer la peculiar personalidad de la víctima y su obsesión por seguir los pasos de Gauguin e irse a los mares del Sur. Una novela que refleja los conflictos personales y colectivos de la España de entonces. Aparentemente, Pepe Carvalho viaja a Bangkok para atender el SOS de una vieja amiga, Teresa Marsé. Pero en realidad el lector puede llegar a la conclusión de que huye de su mundo cotidiano, en el que la realidad le es insuficiente y le empuja a perseguir fantasmas, como el de Celia Mataix, asesinada con una botella de champán de marca desconocida, o el de su asesina, Marta Miguel,self-made woman de un pueblo de Salamanca. O quizá el motivo auténtico del viaje sea saber el nombre de los pájaros de Bangkok, o confirmar que la Tierra es redonda y que el desenlace real le espera a su regreso. Más que de viajes, novela de viaje de ida y vuelta, que entre otras posibles lecturas ofrece una versión directa de los escenarios de Conrad, Somerset Maugham o Graham Greene, radicalmente modificados en un tiempo en el que la aventura es casi... imposible Visite nuestro Especial Pepe Carvalho
