9788495501554: El Maestro de Esgrima (Spanish Edition)

In 1866 Spain, Don Jaime is an old-fashioned fencing master, unaware of the political conspiracies around him. A mysterious and beautiful woman enters his life, asking to be instructed in this old gentleman’s art. Once he accepts, he is thrown into an entangled plot of intrigue and death.

Description in Spanish: Novela de aventuras pero también policiaca, de traiciones y maniobras políticas en el Madrid galdosiano de 1868, El maestro de esgrima es la historia de un mundo de tahúres y mercachifles mantenido a distancia por un florete honorable. Pero es, sobre todo, una inquietante parábola sobre el poder del dinero, la ambición política y la extinción de los valores de honradez y fidelidad en los finales del siglo XX.
