A popular mystery writer breaks out with this page-turning international bestseller set in post-Civil War Spain

September 1940: the Spanish Civil War is over, Madrid lies in ruin, while the Germans continue their march through Europe, and General Franco evades Hitler's request that he lead his broken country into yet another war. Into this uncertain world comes a reluctant spy for the British Secret Service, sent to gain the confidence of Sandy Forsyth, an old school friend turned shady Madrid businessman. Meanwhile, an ex-Red Cross nurse is engaged in a secret mission of her own. Through this dangerous game of intrigue, C. J. Sansom's riveting tale conjures a remarkable sense of history unfolding and the profound impact of impossible choices.

Synopsis:

Haunting novel set in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War, offering a compelling portrait of a country ravaged by war and a sense of history unfolding, with a plot that is part thriller, part love story.

Kristen M, May 26, 2010 (view all comments by Kristen M)
Though this book was not predictable -- and even had a somewhat surprising plot twist near the end -- it was a foregone conclusion that all of the characters would not make it out unscathed. With the types of people that they had to interact with and the system that they had to work in, life was difficult for both the haves and have-nots during this time.

I have read one other book by Sansom (Dissolution) and I appreciate his style and the amount of research he does. This isn't your typical spy or war novel with sex and profanity and senseless violence. It is a well-presented fiction that takes place in a time in Spain's history that was all too real.
