2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By J. M. Salinas on 4 Sept. 2008
Format: Hardcover
The fact of the matter is, this book is merely a correct thriller with a bit of added flavour.
The impact of The Truth About the Savolta Case was its year of publication. Understand that in 1975 in Spain nobody talked about the times prior to the Civil War. The Pact of Silence was about to be set in place. And then along came Eduardo Mendoza with his accurate description of the interwar period in Barcelona. The living conditions, the constant threat of anarchist terrorists, the workers revolts, all present a well researched and crafted background for the archetypal characters to unravel.

So, as a thriller, correct. Understood in terms of time of publication and the background, perhaps it deserves an extra star.
