Product Details

Praise

“[Pérez-Reverte’s] best book yet . . . a game of mental chess, an excursion into art, history and imagination.”
The Times (London)

“A remarkable achievement. Not only does the clash of ideas and emotions echo after you have turned the last page–this novel will change what you see in images from datelines around the world.”
Scott Simon, author of Pretty Birds

“Arturo Pérez-Reverte has established himself as the master of the intellectual thriller.”
–Chicago Tribune

“[A] taut literary thriller [with] meticulous detail and dark, brooding tone.”
–Publishers Weekly

“A gripping story of war, cruelty, testimony, and the past . . . Arturo Pérez-Reverte is the great European storyteller of the 21st century.”
–Simon Sebag Montefiore, author of Young Stalin

“Reminds American readers of the sublime rhetoric of Faulkner and how such passages in the hands of a master can add to the momentum of the story.”
–San Francisco Chronicle

“A tour de force [that] explores the great themes of human existence.”
–The Australian
