Fans of Carlos Ruiz Zafón's The Shadow of the Wind and Sebastian Faulks' Birdsong will fall in love with Winter in Madrid, the arresting novel from C.J. Sansom.
     In September 1940, the Spanish Civil War is over and Madrid lies in ruins while the Germans continue their march through Europe. Britain stands alone as General Franco considers whether to abandon neutrality and enter the war.
Into this uncertain world comes Harry Brett, a privileged young man who was recently traumatized by his experience in Dunkirk and is now a reluctant spy for the British Secret Service. Sent to gain the confidence of Sandy Forsyth, an old school friend turned shadowy Madrid businessman, Brett finds himself involved in a dangerous game and surrounded by memories. Meanwhile, Sandy's girlfriend, ex-Red Cross nurse Barbara Clare, is engaged in a secret mission of her own.
     A vivid and haunting depiction of wartime Spain, Winter in Madrid is an intimate and riveting tale that offers a remarkable sense of history unfolding, and reveals the profound impact of impossible choices.

Editorial Reviews

"Part thriller, part romance, and part historical drama.... Post-Civil War Madrid is finely and minutely observed, giving the entire novel a remarkable sense of place." --Sunday Express"Authentic and believable.... As a portrait of a traumatized city, wrapped in silence because speech was dangerous, Winter in Madrid is a remarkable achievement." --The Times Literary Supplement"Sansom's action-packed thriller is a classic tale of old loyalties pitched against new ideologies." --Daily Mail"Superb." --USA Today"Sansom deftly plots his politically charged tale for maximal suspense, all the way up to its stunning conclusion." --Publishers Weekly
