Or the bull kills you by Jason Webster( Book )
20 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and German and held by 1,085 libraries worldwide
"An accomplished debut mystery set in the high-stakes and decidedly murky world of bullfighting in Valencia, Spain "Either you kill the bull, or the bull kills you." Chief Inspector Max Cámara thinks in proverbs, and he hates one thing above all: bullfighting. One hot afternoon in Valencia, however, he has to stand in for his boss, judging a festival corrida starring Spain's most famous young matador. That night, he is back in the bullring, and what he finds on the blood-stained sand shocks the city of Valencia to its core. Cámara is roped into investigating a grisly murder while dealing with violent shadows from his own past, as well as confronting the suspiciousness of the bullfighting community and the stonewalling of local politicians in full electoral campaign. To top it all, Fallas, the loudest fiesta in the country, has just got underway. For Cámara, it seems his problems have only just begun."--
