Madrid 1939. Carlos Tejada Alonso y Lean is a Sergeant in the Guardia Civil, a rank rare for a man not yet 30, but Tejada is an unusual recruit. The bitter civil war between the Nationalists and the Republicans has interrupted his legal studies in Salamanca. Second son of a conservative Southern family of landowners, he is an enthusiast for the Catholic Franquista cause, a dedicated, and now triumphant, Nationalist.

This war has drawn international attention. In a dress rehearsal for World War II, fascists support the Nationalists, while communists have come to the aid of the Republicans. Atrocities have devastated both sides. It is at this moment, when the Republicans have surrendered, and the Guardia Civil has begun to impose order in the ruins of Madrid, that Tejada finds the body of his best friend, a hero of the siege of Toledo, shot to death on a street named Amor de Dios. Naturally, a Red is suspected. And it is easy for Tejada to assume that the woman caught kneeling over the body is the killer. But when his doubts are aroused, he cannot help seeking justice.

    " Really enjoyed this, especially because it was a setting I was so unfamiliar with. I was worried for a while that Tejada would remain the same semi-amoral fascist throughout, but happily that is not the case. "

    " Gotta love a novel about Sergeant Tejada. I enjoyed the historical novel of a time/place I have not read much about, and definitely not a perspective I would have originally chosen to see. "

    " This was debut novel of very interesting series. The series takes place in revolutionary Spain. What an interesting time. "

    " not your typical murder mystery - transports you to Franco's spain and inside a small slice of the terror, casual murder, disappearances, and allegiences - would be great to read in original spanish! "
