The Seventh Bull by Gordon Rothwell


Robert Dunne, a once respected journalist, is now a drunken hanger-on following a famous bullfighter on tour. Paco Garcia’s fans call him “The Matador Who Can’t Be Killed.” Robert hopes to get on the bestseller list with a book that will reveal the mystery of Paco’s ability to avoid “death in the afternoon.  In Tijuana, Paco fires his beautiful agent, Dolores, despite her warnings.  In a dramatic bullfight, Paco cheats death yet again and thrills the crowd.  But at a party after the fight, the matador drunkenly falls off a high diving board and breaks his neck.  Robert suspects foul play by the agent.  When he confronts Dolores, she seduces him with promises of fame—but is he willing to pay the price?
REVIEW ON AMAZON:
5.0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding! March 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This exotic story draws us into the glamorous, yet dark and dangerous world of the Matador. The author’s experience as a sports writer, and his fascination with the bull ring brings a chilling authenticity to the story only he could write. The Seventh Bull plays out in front of your eyes. Even though this is a short story, it would make a classic movie. A dark exposé dripping in glamour and gore. Spellbinding.
