“One of the most promising voices in European crime fiction…Fans of Javier Marías, Leonardo Padura, and Philip Kerr will find much to admire in Del Árbol’s work.” —Crime Reads, The Best International Crime Fiction of the Year

“This blockbuster novel by an award-winning Spanish author…succeeds as historical fiction, a thriller, and a detective story.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“Del Árbol, a gifted storyteller, keeps the pages turning even as he probes the dark, compromised souls of his characters.” —Chicago Tribune

“A major piece of work that will lodge in your mind for a long time. Truly rewarding and brings thriller writing into a whole new, fully grown-up dimension. Should not be missed.” —Crime Time

“Drawing on some of the most heinous events of the twentieth century, Del Árbol crafts a powerful but painful epic.” —Publishers Weekly

“As I finished reading this book I came to a discovery that still fills me with anguish: the true protagonist of this story is death itself. Death in the guise of a woman both ruthless and terrifying, whose portrait Víctor del Árbol has fleshed out with the painterly eye of a Renaissance master.” —Javier Sierra, New York Times bestselling author of The Secret Supper
