Descriptions du produit

Can two miniature paintings bring down a government? When a young German woman is bequeathed two paintings -- presumed destroyed during the siege of Madrid in 1936 -- a simple errand becomes a deadly chase. The new blood of Europe encounters the old Blood of Spain, revealing secret allegiances and ambitions of power, as an international cast of characters journey to the dark soul of Spain's ignoble past. Greed, vanity, pride, envy and lust fuel a murderous hunt for ...vengeance? supremacy? or truth?

Fast and Pacey 16 décembre 2011
Par KEN SCOTT author - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Downloaded this book from Kindle for a five hour trip to Barcelona. Carrying out a little research for my own book on the Spanish Civil War and this one seemed to fit the bill. Finished the book in my hotel room on the same day, a 'one dayer,' in my eyes worthy of five stars. Captured the moment perfectly and loved the historical content and the way the author skillfully took the reader back to Spain's darkest days and left just a little hint that they could easily be ressurected. Great plot, well researched book and written with an obvious passion for my adopted homeland. Hoping to read more of the same very soon.

A Gripping Read 3 août 2011

After Goya is engaging from page one and takes you on a thrilling journey throughout Spain and across time. Its a wonderful mix of Art History, Spanish Civil War politics, International espionage and conspiracy theory. Haarlson Phillipps is a great writer who skillfully pulls you into the intrigue and twists and turns the plot keeping you riveted. A great read!

Story's OK but so many mistakes, 20 septembre 2013

Other than the fact that there are so many characters and there's not enough about the Spanish Civil War, it's not a bad story. But the Kindle edition is hard to read: some paragraphs are indented and some not; a number of words are missing the first letter; pronouns that make you wonder who they refer to; spelling errors. But at that price I guess it's OK - distracting and annoying, but OK.
Read this on your flight to Spain 24 janvier 2015

As a literary thriller, the plot doesn't disappoint. A simple tale of baddies trying to steal a couple of paintings adds layer upon layer of intrigue as Cotelo follows the trail of subtle clues and curious characters, while simultaneously negotiating the murky waters of Spanish back room politics. The literary and artistic pretensions of the novel are laid on with a light touch, adding depth and richness to a good old rip-roaring tale of detective work.

Cotelo himself is a thinking person's Columbo, dishevelled and disrespectful, with a keen nose for human nature. But he also has political and literary sensibilities, a dark back story, and a dash of sex appeal thrown in for good measure.

For many English readers, this novel will introduce them to an unfamiliar Spain. The traumas and divisions of the civil war still lie just beneath the surface even today. This dark tale of simple greed and complicated historical and political motivations places the reader firmly in that divided society.

As a page-turning thriller with the added richness of literary, artistic and historical settings, this was very satisfying read.
