Customer Review

on 2 April 2013
Great storyline with many twists and turns, set in 1930's Spain at the close of the Civil War. Very strong sense of place and period, with characters ranging from an appealing leftwing journalist to repulsive fascist sympathisers. Story starts as an account of a holiday coach journey, as General Franco, confident he has won the war, encourages British tourists to visit Northern Spain for "battlefield holidays". (Hideous idea but apparently these so-called holidays actually happened!) An unexpected death takes the story to a darker place and there is a thrilling stakeout, as well as a final twist which I totally failed to guess.

Perfect for anyone who enjoys thrillers, but especially if also interested in politics or want something to read on holiday in Spain. There are also great descriptions of Spanish food!!

Watch out for more by David Ebbsworth.
