"An intelligent literary thriller ... better than the so-called blockbusters I used to read when Head Buyer at Waterstone's," Scott Pack, Publisher at The Friday Project - a UK imprint of HarperCollins.
Can two miniature paintings bring down a government? When a young 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, envy, vanity, pride and lust fuel a murderous hunt for ... vengeance? supremacy? or truth? After Goya will change your idea of Spain.
