Start by marking Sólo una muerte en Lisboa as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. A Small Death in Lisbon' by Robert Wilson is two books in one for at least 500 pages. The first story, told in alternating chapters, is about a Lisbon homicide police detective's investigation of a sex murder of a young girl in 1998. The second novel is a World War II story involving Portuguese smugglers and opportunists who play a murderous cat-and-mouse game with Germany's SS Nazis. The two stories are seemingly unconnected for quite a loooooooong time.
Robert Wilson has spent several years in West Africa, and he drew on this experience for his Bruce Medway novels. He and his wife now live in Portugal, the setting for 'A Small Death in Lisbon'. I strongly recommend this book but will say that it was so well done that I purchased two later books written by Wilson immediately after reading this one - assuming they would be as good. I found that the subsequent books drifted too extensively into soap-opera like scenarios per the personal lives of the main characters.

Enter into a treacherous world in West Africa, where British expatriate Bruce Medway, a clandestine troubleshooter and debt collector, finds himself unexpectedly immersed in toxic waste scams and mafia crime when a job for his newest client turns out to involve more than the recovery of two million dollars. Amy Boxer, the precocious daughter of London kidnap consultant Charles Boxer and Detective Inspector Mercy Danquah, has drifted from melancholy and frustration to drastic action: she’s leaving home. But Amy can’t just walk out, and goads the talents of her parents, with a challenge: YOU WILL NEVER FIND ME.
A Small Death in Lisbon. Author: Robert Wilson. The real star of this gripping and beautifully written mystery which won the British Crime Writers’ Golden Dagger Award for Best Crime Novel last year is Portugal, whose history and people come to life on every page. Wilson tells two stories: the investigation into the brutal sex murder of a 15-year-girl in 1998, and the tangled, bloody saga of a financial enterprise that begins with the Nazis in 1941.
