    In 1953, Comandante Leo Guzmán is head of a secret police unit whose job is to hunt down enemies of the state. Guzmán's brutal tactics are simple and effective: everyone is suspect. In 2009, on a blazing summer's day in the hills near Madrid, Ana María Galindez, a Guardia Civil forensic scientist, examines what she thinks is just another Civil War grave. Fifteen bodies are hidden in an abandoned mine shaft, and forensics reveal that the killings took place sometime in the early 1950s. The identity of the suspected murderer? Comandante Leo Guzmán.

    Simply Unbelievable and fantastic. Easy 5 Star

    A spellbinding second instalment in a trilogy of rare power and narrative scope that unlocks the dark heart of Spain, weaving past and present together to portray a country still scarred by civil war, still riven by fear and hatred, still plagued by secrets that refuse to die. It's 1954. Comandante Guzmán has been posted deep in the Basque country to confront a man known only as 'El Lobo'. Guzmán was last here in the war, though he would rather forget that.

    interesting and eye opening

    Loved it. some times i had to go back just listen to some parts. Very well written.
