This is third in the critically-acclaimed series by Edgar award-winning Pawel - Now in PB. This is a new Carlos Tejadas mystery set in post-Civil War Spain. Spain, 1940. The mountain village of Potes is Tejadas' first independent command. There is no one to meet the train when he and his wife arrive, the officers of the small Guardia Civil post in Potes are far from welcoming and there seems to be no place for them to live but the jail. Tejadas discovers that the officer he is replacing was shot to death and that Potes is the centre of smuggling and guerrilla activity. And then worse befalls: a new outbreak of the Civil War, financed from abroad, may be about to take place with Potes as its epicentre.
