excellently catches the mood of the time and portrays events and characters in a plausible and readable style. The story centres on the trials and tribulations following the Spanish civil war, and tells a hard tale of depressing realism. The book is well worth sticking with if this period of history is of interest.

 Stunning...

An absolute triumph from start to finish. I can't begin to describe effectively how this book made me feel. Such a whirlwind of emotions. Grounded in harsh, morbid reality, steeped with mystery, romance and intrigue its a perfect read. I couldn't put this down and stayed up into the wee hours finishing this book totally gripped, actually shouting at it. The book is beautifully written and realised with great characters. One of the good things about it (though may not be for some) is how frustrated I felt with the characters at the end, what they did and how they acted. But it was never out of character and this stirred a strong emotional reaction, was thought-provoking and realistic. Good qualities in a book if you ask me! I will definatley be re-reading this and also seeking out C.J. Sansom's other work.

I'm currently reading this book and I'm really enjoying it. It makes me want to visit Madrid and read up on the history of the Spanish Civil War, which I know very little about. The characters are very believable but I also think they are sad about their lives and how they've turned out.... the descriptions of the city and people and what's happened to them are really well described. I want to read CJ Sansom's other novels now as I love the Tudor period.
