A woman struggles to survive in the besieged city of Madrid during the Spanish Civil War. It's 1940 and Marķa lives anonymously in the city which, despite what our history books tell us, has held out for four years and, with American help, may see its long siege lifted. A chance meeting with her son, a soldier in the army of General Franco, in the ruins of the city university will take her from the bombed streets of Madrid to the old Moorish city of Granada. Besieged by the Republican forces, it's the key to defeating Franco. Its Alhambra Palace in ruins, can she, the awkward Captain Gregorio and a group of Andalusian anarchists uncover the secret Lorca left behind shortly before his own execution in 1936? A novel that follows in the footsteps of Len Deighton's SS-GB and Philip K. Dick's The Man in the High Castle.

Colin has lived in Spain for ten years and has never failed to be fascinated by its people, culture and history. The book grew out of his interest in the history of the Spanish Civil War and also having the chance to visit most of the main locations. Having the chance to travel around Spain meant he could indulge in another of his interests - enjoying Spanish food and wine. One of the highlights of a visit he made to Granada was sitting in a terrace bar, looking across at the Alhambra palace and drinking a glass of chilled manzanilla wine.
