On Spain’s Costa Brava, passion and intrigue are everywhere – especially in the hearts of those who dwell there. As the dictator Franco teeters on the edge of death – a death that will completely overturn the political structure of Spain – two couples are entwined. One, a husband and wife bored with the existence they have drifted into. The other, a passionate, combative pair who relish every moment of life. Into this potent mix a young American arrives, seeking his missing lover – bringing a shadow of danger into the machinations already at work. Soon the political tension in the country reaches the breaking point, and that danger becomes an all-too-stark reality…as a heartrending misunderstanding unravels the fragile bonds of love and loyalty, and leads to a tragedy that will forever change the lives of everyone it touches. “A terrific yarn spinner.” – Chicago Sun-Times “Lescroart’s a pro.” – Jonathan Kellerman
