Retired Dallas police detective Harry Bronson is touring South Dakota in his motor home. His cop instincts still strong, he spots a troubled woman, Linda Randig, who needs help. She's being stalked by a sadistic killer who masterminded the death of her parents and her husband. Now, he's threatening her son and baby grandson. He's watching her every move and calling every shot.
She's been dispatched on a cross-country chase for a purpose unknown. And no police—or else. Bronson intervenes and the killer quickly steps up his game, leaving dead bodies and taunting notes mocking his efforts. Still, their mysterious madman wants something, and Linda is the key. Harry enlists the help of his old partner to sort through the red herrings and critical clues to pinpoint the killer's next move. A move that seems to involve Harry, Linda—and a very dead end.
A mig camí entre la memòria i la ficció, en una barreja de gèneres, Pa negre gira a l’entorn de l’Andreu, un vailet de la Plana de Vic en els anys més crus de la postguerra. Ell pertany a la banda dels perdedors: el seu pare, home de ferms ideals republicans, ha estat empresonat per roig. De resultes d’això, la mare s’ha hagut de posar a treballar a la fàbrica i el confia a uns parents que viuen a pagès. Tot i viure lluny dels pares, en un clima de por que es palpa arreu, el temps a la masia estarà farcit de sentiments i descobertes. Hi descobrirà el misteriós món dels adults, la intuïció rere les paraules dels grans, farà tentines en els viaranys del sexe. És, també, un temps d’amistats valentes, de contes explicats a la vora del foc, de jocs a l’aire lliure, de plantar barraques a les branques dels arbres, de farinetes de blat de moro, de pa amb vi i sucre... de pa negre. En temps de guerra –i de postguerra- tots els sentiments són abrandats, van a l’essència: o tot o res, perquè no hi ha gairebé res a perdre. L’amor, l’odi, la passió, la rancúnia, la venjança, la hipocresia, la humiliació... res no s’escapa de la vida dels personatges d‘aquesta obra, en què Emili Teixidor aconsegueix transportar-nos a una època de repressió i de missa obligada. L’autor recrea amb total precisió l’ambient rural de la Catalunya de postguerra amb una llengua vivíssima, rica, plena de matisos, i un ple domini de la tensió narrativa. De mica en mica, el lector assistirà a un canvi substancial en l’Andreu, que aprendrà de cada cosa que li passa i que, de perdedor passa a sentir-se guanyador, en una metàfora del país que assimila la derrota i accepta, amb passivitat, una victòria que no és la seva.I s’adonarà també d’una lliçó molt important: a més estimació, més perills de tota mena. L’amor crema.
