1936, Badajoz: His unit defeated, his ammunition spent, a boy-soldier flees into the hills pursued by Franco's shock-troops. He will need more than luck to survive the day.

1953, Madrid: Amid snow-bound streets, the head of Franco's secret police discovers the web of lies burying his past is unravelling. Even for a man feared throughout the city, the truth is a death sentence.

2009, Las Peñas: Forensic Investigator Ana María Galindez unearths a mass grave in a disused mine. Her investigation will disturb forces that have lain dormant for decades.

THE SENTINEL is a spellbinding thriller in a trilogy of rare power and scope that unlocks the dark heart of Spain, weaving past and present together to portray a country still scarred by civil war, still riven by fear and hatred, still plagued by secrets that refuse to die.

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

'Superbly told, and with a fine villain at its heart, this is a remarkable first thriller that bodes exceptionally well for Oldfield's future' The Daily Mail

Polished and impressive... [for] fans of Kate Mosse' Guardian
