“A superior mystery. Carr excels at incorporating early 20th-century Spanish political developments into a suspenseful and clever plot line. Philip Kerr fans will be pleased.” , Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Carr combines fiction with fact (including historical characters). The result is a vivid portrayal of Barcelona’s ‘Tragic Week’ of political and social conflict, a skillfully crafted account that is ultimately as much history as mystery.”, Booklist

“Fans of Philip Kerr and politically tinged historical detective fiction should keep an eye out for this one. It’s a richly complex read, fascinating and provocative, offering a historical and political perspective that was as bracing as it was entertaining.”, Thrilling Detective
