The sixth in the Martin Bora WWII mystery series.
 
Spain, July 1937. The tragic prelude to World War II is played out in the Spanish Civil War. Among Franco’s troops is Martin Bora, the young German officer and detective, assigned to the Spanish Foreign Legion in the sierras of Aragon.
 
When Bora happens on the body of Federico García Lorca, the brilliant Spanish poet and playwright, he begins a perilous investigation of the murder. His inquiry paradoxically proceeds alongside that of Walton, his opposite number with the International Brigades and a friend of the poet. Soon the German and the New Englander join forces, and their cooperation culminates in a thrilling chase after Lorca’s suspected killer.
 
Historical accounts tell us that Lorca was executed by a Franco death squad. To this day his burial site remains a mystery.
