A beautiful Spanish rebel fighter in the clutches of El Carnicero

Spain during the Napoleonic Wars: Captain Jonathan Farnsworth of the Rifle Brigade only wanted to meet with some Spanish allies and spend a few stolen hours with Comandante Teresa, rebel leader and the woman he loved. But instead Jonathan stepped into a scene of pure horror, when he found the village burning and its people slaughtered.

Teresa was not among the dead. However, she had been captured by the Napoleon’s troops and was now the prisoner of the notorious French colonel known only as El Carnicero, the butcher. And tomorrow, Teresa would be executed on the garrotte as a rebel…



Warning: There is some fairly graphic violence in this novelette, so sensitive readers should tread carefully.

Richard Blakemore (1900 – 1994) was a prolific writer of pulp fiction. Nowadays, he is best remembered for creating the Silencer, a masked vigilante in the vein of the Shadow or the Spider, during the hero pulp boom of the 1930s. But Richard Blakemore also wrote in many other genres, including an early sword and sorcery series about the adventures of a sellsword named Thurvok and his companions.
Richard Blakemore's private life was almost as exciting as his fiction. He was a veteran of World War I and II as well as a skilled sportsman and adventurer who travelled the world during the 1920s. He may also have been the person behind the mask of the real life Silencer who prowled New York City between 1933 and 1942, fighting crime, protecting the innocent and punishing the guilty, though nothing has ever been proven.
Richard Blakemore was married for more than fifty years to Constance Allen Blakemore and the couple had four children.
