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, and the Germans continue their march through Europe. 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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Rebecca | 2/17/2014

    " I thought I would hate this book, but it was great overall. Found it a little difficult to start off, but once I had warmed to the characters I found I couldn't wait to find out how it all ended for them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Monique Willemsen | 2/16/2014

    " Erg goed boek. Spanning, goed verhaal, politiek, uit burgeroorlog in Spanje tijd van Franco, maar ook nog een roman erin. Erg goed geschreven, kan het zeker aanraden. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Denise Hartman | 2/10/2014

    " Fascinating atmosphere in this book. I liked the characters and the tension. The history was well crafted and seemed accurate from other things I've read of the Civil War here in Spain. Good writing. Not what I think of as a traditional mystery but I enjoyed the book and got obsessed with finishing it last weekend. I didn't actually love the final resolution but it was a good book and I can recommend it. Would be one to sit around a cup of tea and discuss with friends. "

    " This is a long book for what is essentially a mild thriller. But it did keep my interest to the end, which certainly wasn't totally predictable. Likeable and despicable characters also pulled me in. "
