Praise

“Darkly engrossing…[A Million Drops] defies categorization, pulling together the best elements of historical fiction, psychological thrillers, and literary character studies.” —Washington Post

“A mystery on an epic scale, extending over decades, generations, and nations…Meticulously plotted and stylishly written, this is a page-turner with fresh twists and surprises right up to the very end.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
 
“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

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

“Del Árbol builds a complex and engaging crime novel from many seemingly disparate characters and events…genuinely compelling.” —Booklist

“A mystery-thriller in the best tradition of the genre…A Million Drops is an exciting, ingeniously crafted tale.” —PopMatters
 
“Sublime and unsettling…A riveting historical fresco.” —Huffington Post (Québec)

“Blending personal, psychological, and historical elements in a nonlinear narrative, A Million Drops is complex, but del Árbol has the chops to pull it off. Take your time reading this one. It is worth every minute. Strongly recommended.” —Historical Novel Society
 
“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
