    In February 1981, just as Spain was finally leaving Franco's dictatorship and during the first democratic vote in parliament for a new prime minister - Colonel Tejero and a band of right-wing soldiers burst into the Spanish parliament and began firing shots. Only three members of Congress defied the incursion and did not dive for cover: Adolfo Suarez, the then-outgoing prime minister, who had steered the country away from the Franco era; Guttierez Mellado, a conservative general who had loyally served democracy; and Santiago Carillo, the head of the Communist Party.

    In the late 1970s, as Spain was adrift between the death of Franco and the rebirth of democracy, people were moving from the poor south to the cities of the north in search of a better life. But the work, when there was any, was poorly paid and the housing squalid. Out of this world of limited opportunities a generation of delinquents arose whose prospects were stifled and whose rebellion would be brief and violent.

    Esta es la novela que Javier Cercas se había estado preparando para escribir desde que quiso ser novelista.O desde antes.El monarca de las sombras narra la búsqueda del rastro perdido de un muchacho casi anónimo que peleó por una causa injusta y murió en el lado equivocado de la historia. Se llamaba Manuel Mena y en 1936, al estallar la guerra civil, se incorporó al ejército de Franco; dos años después murió combatiendo en la batalla del Ebro, y durante décadas se convirtió en el héroe oficial de su familia.
