DescriptionThe two detective stories, by Spanish authors, appear in the collection Historias de detectives by Angeles Encinar, and both take place in Madrid. While the authors’ styles are distinct, both contain ironic plot twists and character developments that leave the reader surprised. Furthermore, the reader learns about new lifestyle changes in Madrid that gain popularity at the end of the twentieth century. These are more than detective stories, they encompass themes of post-modernity, revenge, and life’s ambiguities.
