Summary

Arturo Pérez-Reverte regresa con un libro protagonizado por su personaje más fascinante desde el capitán Alatriste.

Violencia, tramas de poder, suspense, lealtad y pasión conforman esta extraordinaria novela de lectura adictiva.

«El mundo de Falcó era otro, y allí los bandos estaban perfectamente definidos: de una parte él, y de la otra todos los demás.»

La Europa turbulenta de los años treinta y cuarenta del siglo XX es el escenario de las andanzas de Lorenzo Falcó, ex contrabandista de armas, espía sin escrúpulos, agente de los servicios de inteligencia. Durante el otoño de 1936, mientras la frontera entre amigos y enemigos se reduce a una línea imprecisa y peligrosa, Falcó recibe el encargo de infiltrarse en una difícil misión que podría cambiar el curso de la historia de España. Un hombre y dos mujeres -los hermanos Montero y Eva Rengel- serán sus compañeros de aventura y tal vez sus víctimas, en un tiempo en el que la vida se escribe a golpe de traiciones y nada es lo que parece.

Arturo Pérez-Reverte entrelaza magistralmente realidad y ficción en esta historia protagonizada por un nuevo y fascinante personaje, comparable a los más destacados espías y aventureros de la literatura.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Arturo Pérez-Reverte returns with a novel whose main character is his most fascinating one since Captain Alatriste.

Violence, power struggle, suspense, loyalty and passion make up this addictive, extraordinary novel.

"Falcó's world was another one, and in it the opponents were perfectly defined: on one side, it was him, on the other, everyone else."

A turbulent Europe during the thirties and forties in the twentieth century, is the backdrop for the adventures of Lorenzo Falcó, ex-smuggler of arms, spy without scruples, agent of the secret intelligence services. During the fall of 1936, when the border between friends and enemies is reduced to a dangerous and unprecise fine line, Falcó is given the task of infiltrating a complicated mission that could change the course of Spain's history. One man, two women -the Montero brothers and Eva Rengel- will be his adventure companions and perhaps his victims, during a time in which life is written treason by treason and nothing is what it seems.

Arturo Pérez-Reverte masterfully intertwines reality and fiction in this story whose new and fascinating main character joins the greatest spies and adventurers in literature.
