DEADLY ALGARVE: ANABELA SILVA INVESTIGATES
Three hikers disappear from an ancient pilgrim’s path within a short period of time. This proves to be a particularly sensitive situation for Chief Inspector Joáo Almeida, since one of the missing people is his half-sister, Liliana. Then a corpse is found, mutilated by wild boar – but it isn’t Liliana.
Almeida takes on the investigation but is muzzled in an effort not to jeopardise tourism in the region. Don’t breathe a word about murder is the order of the day. He asks his friend, German journalist Anabela Silva, for support. Little does she know that she’s the bait for a cold-blooded murderer.
