Captain Alatriste by Arturo Perez-Reverte
Book DescriptionThe novels of Arturo Perez-Reverte have captivated readers around the world and earned him a reputation as the master of the intellectual thriller ( Chicago Tribune ). His books have been published in fifty countries. Now, beginning with Captain Alatriste , comes Perez-Reverte s most stunning creation to date: a riveting series featuring the adventures of an iconic hero. Captain Alatriste is the story of a fictional seventeenth-century Spanish soldier who lives as a swordsman-for-hire in Madrid. Needing gold to pay off his debts, Alatriste and another hired blade are paid to ambush two travelers, stage a robbery, and give the travelers a fright. No blood, they are told. Then a mysterious stranger enters to clarify the job: he increases the pay, and tells Alatriste that, instead, he must murder the two travelers. When the attack unfolds, Alatriste realizes that these aren t ordinary travelers, and what happens next is only the first in a riveting series of twists and turns, with implications that will reverberate throughout the courts of Europe.
