A desperate mother searches for her daughter, Jlia. Lnia takes on the job of looking for her in Mallorca, her last known whereabouts, but no one there knows anything. But Lnia suspects that her informers are lying. A Castilian song with its deformed version in Catalan provides a clue, and little by little she unravels the mystery, but she pays a price: a destroyed car, a sprained ankle, a finger in a cast, and a beating or two... With lots of action and lots of emotion, there is no doubt that it is an Oliver novel. In Blue Roses, Lnia has reached the level of the best current detectives, like Sue Graftons, for example. She is now prepared to take on strange and difficult situations: mixtures of magic and sex, hatred and tenderness, fantasy and action. Maria-Antnia Oliver has done a good job of consolidating her protagonists character. Blue Roses is a solid literary product which will please both Lnia Guiu fans and those who enjoy high quality works of detective fiction.
