MADRID, 1982.
Comandante Leopoldo Guzmán has decided it is time to disappear. Franco is dead and there's no place in the new order for the former head of the tyrant's secret police. But first, Guzmán needs money. Luckily, blackmail has always come easily to him – after all, he knows where the bodies are.

And so he should. He buried them.

MADRID, 2010.
Fifteen tangled corpses in a disused mine, three bound skeletons in a sealed cellar – a trail of dead that has led forensic investigator Ana María Galíndez to one Comandante Leopoldo Guzmán.

Guzmán himself disappeared decades ago but she fears his toxic legacy lives on. Her investigation has revealed a dark conspiracy born amid the corruption of Franco's dictatorship, a conspiracy that after decades in the shadows is finally ready to bloom.

Mark Oldfield was born in Sheffield, but now lives in Kent. He holds a PhD in criminology.

A spellbinding British thriller.

Concluding part in a trilogy of rare power and scope, shortlisted for CWA Steel Dagger.

Leopoldo Guzman: you'll never forget him.

MARKET: Carlos Ruiz Zafon; C.J. Sansom.

'A well structured exciting thriller, complex enough to tax the reader but easily read. The action is constant and the pace strong right to the end' Nudge Book
