“Look how dead I am You catch me sailing and now I enter a port with the ship“, said the author, who is enjoying a well-deserved rest these days after finishing his next novel.
He false advertisement launched from the supposed account of Francisco Jiménez has caused enormous alarm in the literary and cultural world.
The tweet has been deleted half an hour after its publication, around 2:30 p.m. However, new tweets have been published from the supposed account of the Government Delegate in Murcia. All these messages share the same persistent insistence on matar to Perez-Reverte.
