<h3>Esta historia es <strong>GRATIS</strong> y todo comentario se agradece.</h3><br /><br />En su primera aventura, Francisco Valiente Polillas iniciará su carrera como detective y perseguirá a un despiadado <strong>asesino</strong> en uno de los lugares más lujosos e inhóspitos del mundo. <strong>La Nueva York de oriente medio, Dubái.</strong> Se verá obligado a luchar cuando menos se lo espera, se enfrentará al carnicero de fin de semana, tendrá que demostrar su valía en cada momento, hasta que finalmente... ¿conseguirá atrapar al culpable? <br /><br />Que comience la caza…<br /><br />Nos encontramos con una <strong>novela negra</strong> diferente. Una <strong>novela negra</strong> de corte juvenil y con mucho <strong>humor</strong>. Desde hace tres años es una de las más vendidas en su género y en la clasificación general. Es cierto que se trata de una <strong>novela gratis</strong>, aunque son las opiniones de los lectores quienes la han valorado mejor. Al ser una <strong>novela policíaca en español</strong>, con toques de <strong>humor</strong> (rozando el <strong>humor negro</strong>), y una prosa ágil y sencilla, apta para todos los públicos… la diversión está asegurada. A seguir encontraréis opiniones de los lectores. Gracias por escoger esta <strong>novela gratis</strong>, y espero que disfruten con su protagonista.<br /><br /><strong>Novela corta</strong> que es lo que es, una <strong>novela</strong> entretenida, sin más pretensiones que la de pasar un rato ameno, con una lectura fácil y ágil. Con una trama increíble, absurda a veces, pero entretenida hasta el final. (Asensio Piqueras)<br /><br />Un concepto nuevo de la <strong>novela negra</strong>. (Embru 72, lectora de amazon)<br /><br />Me ha gustado la trama y la simpatía de los personajes. El autor trata sus libros de una forma especial, he leído alguno, y particularmente me entusiasma su forma de narrar. También he disfrutado de los golpes de <strong>humor</strong> que hacen el libro más ameno. Muy recomendable para amantes de la lectura. (Merche, lectora de amazon)<br /><br />"Negro - Crimen en Dubái" es una lectura fresca, sencilla, atrayente, motivadora y algo ingenua, muy apropiada para chicos no habituados a la lectura, y que los puede enganchar hasta sus últimas páginas, y motivarlos a buscar otras historias donde igualmente puedan identificarse con este protagonista, un poco friki, divertido, y audaz, como suelen ser muchos adolescentes. (Arlen Regueiro)<br /><br />Asombra por el personaje: un joven apenas salido de la adolescencia que un buen día decide hacerse investigador privado y pone un aviso en la prensa y es contratado por un niño, hijo de un multimillonario hombre de negocios en Dubái. Ya solo por ese aspecto uno sabe que no se puede tomar la <strong>novela</strong> en serio. Es surrealista, fantasiosa y sumamente divertida. (Blanca Miosi)<br /><br />NOTA:<br /><br />La <strong>novela negra</strong> es un género querido por los lectores. Romper moldes convierte "Crimen en <strong>Dubái</strong>" en una novedad que se odiará... o se amará. <br /><strong>Libros gratis</strong><br /><br />Sobre el autor:<br /><br />Nacido el 06 de marzo de 1980 en Alcalá de Henares, a nuestro invitado de hoy le gusta presumir de haber gateado en tierras cervantinas. De padre griego y madre española, habla seis idiomas, aunque prefiere decir ser un estudioso de la lengua castellana. Desde muy joven ha viajado por toda Europa y ha visitados países de Sudamérica y del norte de África, siendo oriente una asignatura pendiente. Su gran pasión es la de crear historias y compartirlas. Por ello inició sus publicaciones en internet, donde cuenta con un gran número de seguidores, incontables visitas a su web y más de 1.000.000 de descargas de sus novelas y relatos. Algunos de sus títulos más conocidos son: Antigio, La mina de los 100 cadáveres, La primera corona, Negro – Crimen en Dubái, El juicio de los espejos, Las delicias del mal, El feto y muchas más. <strong>Algunas de sus novelas ya han sido traducidas al inglés, al francés, al portugués y al italiano.</strong><br />

Is Mason Wilson just another wimpy kid? Wimps don't embark on an unauthorized night-time trip to a strange, old factory; he'll do anything to stop his penniless family being thrown out of their home. There's a mystery to solve to win the grand prize - if you hardly ever find dead birds lying around, why are whole flocks of them starting to fall from the sky all over the place? Does the Bible really say that it’s a sign of the end of the world? Mason uncovers some gross goings-on and plans that will change the world for ever. Should he do the right thing and try and stop them? He’ll lose an opportunity of a lifetime if he does; still, when his parents find out he's gone missing, that will be the least of his worries! A quirky, yet strangely educational, adventure-mystery that the whole family can enjoy.
