The Black Jersey: A Novel by Jorge Zepeda Patterson
Someone is killing off professional cyclists during the Tour de France. Bicycling themed fiction is usually best left to fanatics, but this is far better than most and should appeal to a broader spectrum of general whodunnit readers. The cover art evokes the golden age of cycling and would look great on appropriate display shelving.
Zepeda has a background as an economist, journalist and has a doctorate in Political Science from the Sorbonne. His novel Milena won the prestigious Planeta Prizethe richest literary prize in the world, after the Nobel.
